Redwings’ newest visitor centre in North Norfolk opened in April 2013. Situated in idyllic countryside just 12 miles from the centre of Norwich, it is home to nearly 70 horses, ponies, and donkeys.
On site, the Redwings team offer regular walking tours as well as demonstrations in horse care.
Facilities include a gift shop full of horsey souvenirs as well as a café offering warm drinks and delicious snacks.
Redwings Aylsham is able to cater for group visits regularly hosts activities during the school holidays and there is also an outdoor children’s play area for younger visitors to enjoy.
Visitors can support the work of Redwings by sponsoring one of the charity’s friendly horsey or donkey residents, ideal as a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one. A year’s membership to the Redwings Adoption Club costs just £15! Redwings Aylsham is home to some of the charity’s most charming Adoption Stars, including stunning Friesian mare Maya, the very handsome Gulliver, cheeky donkey duo Wiggins and Wacko, and Redwings’ notorious herd of Shetlands, known collectively as ‘The Gangsters’.
It really is a lovely day out for the whole family and as entry is completely free, it’s an experience not to be missed.
Dogs on leads are welcome at all of Redwings’ visitor centres.
Open from 10am to 4pm Fridays to Mondays all year round and open daily 10am to 4pm from July to early September.
FREE entry and parking.
