Kingston Maurward Animal Park & Gardens
Welcome to the Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens! This year we have decided to open free of charge to all our customers in celebration of the end of the very unusual year we’ve all had. Families can now enjoy a fabulous day out seeing all our animals enjoying the sunshine, and exploring out beautiful gardens, without it costing a fortune! Come along to the Barn Café with its delicious menu designed to suit all tastes and dietary requirements – we have hot and cold drinks, cakes, pastries, sandwiches, crisps and fruit; or why not bring a picnic – but please take your litter home! Bring the whole family for the perfect day out at Kingston Maurward!
Come and visit our super friendly animals – we have everything from ducks, pigs and sheep, to chickens, guinea pigs and bunnies! Get to know the animals as you walk around the Animal Park, but don’t forget to wash your hands after you have touched any of them, especially if you have something to eat!
Take a peaceful stroll round our stunning formal gardens, which were laid in 1922 in the Jardin Anglais style of the famous landscape gardener, Capability Brown. Have a tranquil cup of tea on one of the many benches and appreciate the creativity of our skilled gardening team, who you will often see tending the many plantings across the estate.
The Estate Shop
Coming Soon! We will be opening a brand new retail outlet (where the Visitor Centre was previously located) adjacent to the Animal Park & Gardens entrance. This promises to be an exciting addition to the estate – and will be a one-stop shop for all your lifestyle items, gifts, plants and farm shop produce. We will be opening in the summer…so please watch this space for updates!
The Barn & Cafe
Our purpose-built Barn & Café is currently open for takeaway food and drink – we have hot and cold drinks, delicious cakes and pastries, and savoury snacks including pastries, sandwiches and crisps. We also have a soft play area and seating in the Barn & Café which is currently off limits due to restrictions…but we look forward to welcoming everyone back inside as soon as we can!
