Fairy Labyrinth

Once Upon A Time… Our Woodland Fairies decided that CONKERS needed a challenge that all could complete, so planted a meandering Labyrinth around their secret Fairy Tower!

Can you find your way through the Woodland Fairies challenge?

Sky Viewing Tower

Reach new heights as you climb to the top of the viewing platform for a treetop panorama across the 120 acres of CONKERS woodlands.

Adventure Play

Always a firm favourite – Adventure Play area is situated outside The Waterside Centre and contains a wide variety of outdoor play attractions including the Explorer Dome.

Barefoot Walk

Barefoot Walk

450 meters of squelching, tiptoeing and stomping!

Delight your senses with the wonderful sensation of walking on timber, bark, coal, pebbles, wood and clay. Feel the mud ooze between your toes, the foot bath and the sun baked rocks, the softness of the grass and soil.

Water Play

Guaranteed to make a splash!
The Water play area is situated outside The Discovery Centre. Kids and water – they love it!


The 120 acres of maturing woodland, lakes and ponds at CONKERS provide a varied habitat for a wide range of fauna and flora. And of course our two resident owls, Edwig and Wizzo along with our Partridges and Canaries!
