Thornton Hall Farm Country Park

Come rain or shine, a fun filled, family day out beckons at Thornton Hall Farm. Animal encounters, glorious countryside, indoor and outdoor entertainment and much more.

Make friends with friendly farm animals, greet the newest arrivals and take part in a range of seasonal hands-on activities, demonstrations and animal encounters. Climb aboard the Wizzick Farm Safari for a unique, fun and educational guided tour of the farm and deer park. Let the kids explore the Play Barn with ride-on tractors, giant slides, sandpit and tots play area. Hitch a ride on the giant caterpillar or try the junior Quad Bikes – great fun for children aged 6 and over.
