Kingston Maurward Animal Park & Gardens

Welcome! Here at Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens, we have 35 acres of beautifully restored gardens with year-round interest, formal gardens including two National Plant collections, sweeping lawns, lakeside walks plus a collection of livestock, poultry, and donkeys - to name a few - all set within Grade II listed parkland.  Enjoy a stroll followed by a cup of tea and a scrumptious piece of cake from our Barn Café, let the children run and play in our indoor or outdoor play areas – or sit on one of our secluded benches, listen to the sound of birdsong and be inspired by a location that so influenced Thomas Hardy.  We are free to enter and open daily, we welcome enquiries for group or event bookings, scroll through our menu for more information.
