Christmas secrets revealed at Wildwood Trust

Wildwood Trust announces enchanting woodland tours this Christmas season


From 5 December 2020 to 3 January 2021, Wildwood Trust will be welcoming visitors after dark to discover the magical yuletide secrets of its animals.

The popular wildlife park and conservation charity will welcome small groups to the ‘winter woodland tours’, where they will embark upon a guided adventure, fuelled with merry tales and magical legends of many native British animals, such as:


  • What is the yule cat

  • What do beavers store in their fridge for Christmas

  • Why are Santa’s reindeer all girls

  • How have forest plants become part of our festive traditions


A very special treat for festive revellers, the residents which are active at dusk and after night falls will be out during the tours, giving visitors a fantastic chance to spot these elusive animals.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a touch of indulgence; guests will be treated to a jug of mulled wine and a mince pie or festive cookie to keep them cosy on their winter walk.


Wildwood Trust received the ‘good to go’ seal of approval earlier this year from the national tourism board, Visit England’s ‘know before you go’ campaign and has been approved to the highest covid safety standards.


With guests set to be enchanted by the ancient woodland of Wildwood, while discovering the exciting legends of Britain’s past, the winter woodland tours are guaranteed to bring out the Christmas spirit in everyone who visits.
