Entry tickets are now available for sale

In order to welcome you back some changes have had to be made in order to comply with the latest government guidance. Pre-booking tickets is essential and some activities may be limited (such as heavy horse wagon rides and tractor trailer rides). Some activities may not be in operation at this time due to current regulations.

To meet the NHS Test and Trace programme requirements, we require the lead booker's contact information on ticket purchase. This data is only used in accordance with our privacy policy and for no other purpose.

Although we have had to make some changes to your visit, our ethos to provide you with a memorable and educational day out remains the same. We have done our very best to ensure we offer you as much as possible under the current circumstances.

We thank you for your understanding and thank you for supporting our family run attraction which is now one of the last Heavy Horse Centres left in Britain.
