Groups with additional needs

Wild Place Project provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to experience nature in a safe, secure and hands-on way.

We have developed a visual story to support school children with autistic spectrum conditions, to help them prepare them for their visit, and to introduce them to some of the experiences they might have while they are visiting. Click here to download the story.


Our toilets are located by the Fun Fort, in the Walled Garden and at the exit to Bear Wood. We have one disabled toilet located on the outside section of the Fun Fort toilets, and more disabled toilets at the exit to Bear Wood.

As Wild Place Project is based on a site rich in natural beauty please be aware that paths can be loose and uneven, so ensure you wear sensible footwear - we would recommend walking boots or wellies during or following wet weather, and advise against wearing flip flops etc. Unfortunately, this means that parts of Wild Place Project are unsuitable for wheelchair users.

Only dogs that are registered with Assistance Dogs UK can visit with their registered owner. You will need to bring confirmation of the registration on your visit. Dog Disclaimer

Parking at Wild Place Project is limited; we advise arriving early during peak periods to avoid disappointment. Parking is free of charge.

Coach parking spaces are strictly limited, and must be pre-booked. They will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

There are picnic benches in the Walled Garden and at Gelada Rocks.
