This year...we are hoping for goshawk and buzzard on the LIVE nestcams! Bring the kids for a Wild Wednesday every wednesday during the school holidays (Hants holidays)
Discover more about British reptiles and amphibians and how they are being conserved in the New Forest.
Specially created display enclosures allow you to safely study these animals.
We have the only collection of all the native lizards, snakes, frogs and toads, including Britain's only venomous snake - the adder - and rarest lizard - the sand lizard.
In addition to reptiles and amphibians, the New Forest Reptile Centre is home to 'A Date With Nature in the New Forest' (Now open again!)which affords an opportunity to see birds of prey close up on nest cams. This project is a collaboration between the RSPB, along with the New Forest National Park Authority, the Forestry Commission and Carnyx Wild. Please visit us in 2015.
Parking and entry is FREE, however, a donation is welcome by use of the car park ticket machine.
The trail mainly follows a fairly smooth gravelled surface, although the final section is a grassy path that can become muddy during wet weather.
