Surrey has any number of attractions, from abbeys and castles to outdoor fun in the Mole Valley and Surrey Heath. Visitors are attracted by the unusually mild weather and lovely landscapes, and venues such as the British Wildlife Centre in East Surrey, home to the country's best collection of indigenous species. If you're anywhere near Lingfield, or are staying at a Surrey hotel in the east of the county, be sure to pop along to the British Wildlife Centre for a fascinating and enjoyable day out.
Surrey Hotels for the British Wildlife Centre at Lingfield
You may sometimes imagine that the rest of the world has a more exotic array of wildlife than we do here in the British Isles, but that's just where the British Wildlife Centre will prove you wrong! We have many fabulous native species and many of them are on display here, for our admiration and enjoyment. The centre has over 40 different indigenous species, from the smallest harvest mice imaginable to magnificent red deer and a whole spectrum of species in between. Who needs the Serengeti when you have Surrey, and a whole host of flora and fauna right on your doorstep? Surrey hotels and guesthouses provide the perfect accommodation while you explore the natural wonders of this diverse county.
The British Wildlife Centre from Surrey Hotels
Apart from the harvest mice and deer, there are numerous species here that you'd be hard pressed to see in the wild, including the likes of Scottish wildcats, otters and elusive pine martens. Free-flying British owls are another popular attraction, and in the Nocturnal House visitors can view secretive creatures such as badgers that only come out at night. There's also a red squirrel enclosure that you can walk through and was the first of its kind in the country, and the primary focus is to allow visitors to see how native species behave in their natural habitats.
Bring the kids along to Pip's Corner, an interactive outdoor area full of educational and fun animal-related activities. From your Surrey hotel or B&B, the British Wildlife Centre is the perfect destination for an exciting and enjoyable day out.
