We visit every year as its great for the winter birds that come overseas, and to see the red squirrels. Friendly reception and great shop. Lots to see and you get to feed the birds on the way round the reserve. You get to spend a fair few hours walking visting all the aviaries and gardens. Great for kids

We love love going to Pensthorpe it`s really nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and just to enjoy the peace and quite you find here at Pensthorpe. There are 4 walks to choose from a short stroll to a long walk. Lots of birds to see ducks to feed on the pond we were lucky to see... More

Improved play area for kids.Much more fun for kids. Play area must be one of best in Norfolk. The trails are good for families but signage looks a bit tired in places.

I was a bit reluctant to visit here as I thought it would be a tad commercialised. I was very pleasantly surprised and had a great day - in fact I didn't get all round and am very much looking forward to going back. At first, when I went into the wader aviary I was worried this was a zoo... More

Lovely walks round the lakes. The ducks are the star attraction - the grandchildren loved them. The playground is the icing on the cake for children. My husband and I loved the gardens. The only disappointment was the cafe. We went there for afternoon tea but there wasn't much choice. Pricey to get into the park if you're taking a... More

We live about a mile from Pensthorpe Natural Park and visit on a regular basis. It is a bit pricey I think for families so if you live in the locality it is better to buy a yearly season ticket. As soon as you enter the park the ducks of all types are at your feet. Its a lovely park... More

Would suggest this attraction would appeal to anyone who loves nature. Very impressed by the staff. All efficient, friendly and great customer service. Although the safari ride is extra, I would recommend it as it gives a great insight into the fascinating and impressive conservation work being made at Pensthorpe. One of the most impressive attractions for children is the... More

Visited the Nature Park with three other adults & two under five year olds. The children were fascinated by the many ducks wandering along the paths and the flamingos who came close to the ropes. There was an area with picnic tables which was good for us and there was room for the children to run around afterwards. The play... More

We live close to Pensthorpe so have a season ticket and will therefore often visit if only for a short time. We took 2 of our grandchildren today and as always we all had a great time, there are lots of things to see and do and I have always been impressed at how there is continued improvement with the...
