Our horses, like Audrey, are relying on as much as ever as we face ongoing challenges due to the pandemic.
Situated in idyllic Norfolk countryside, Redwings Aylsham is home to 50 residents including real-life Black Beauty Maya, donkey duo Wiggins and Wacko, and Redwings’ notorious herd of Shetlands, "The Gangsters". In February 2019 we were awarded a special accolade from Visit England for our 'outstanding welcome' and in April 2019 we were voted the Muddy Stilettos Best Family Attraction in Norfolk so we do hope you will feel very much at home with us!
Redwings Aylsham has now reopened on a trial basis.
However there have been some changes to ensure we keep you all safe! These include:
We are open on Saturdays and Sundays only for the time being, between 10.30am and 3pm.
Visitors must book a time slot for their arrival to ensure the number of people at the centres remains at a safe level at all times. You can book your slot here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/redwings-aylsham-entrance-tickets-tickets-113078460720 (Please note that following the change in the law we are unable to take bookings for groups larger than six people. Thank you for your understanding).
Entry remains free but donations would be welcome towards the care of our lovely rescued residents.
There is a one-way route around the centre to help everyone maintain social distancing.
The play area remains closed for now, but our gift shop is open and we're providing a takeaway service of drinks and pre-packaged snacks from our cafe.
To help protect our equine care teams, we're asking for now that visitors avoid touching our fencelines or horses.

How to find us
Just 12 miles from the centre of Norwich, Redwings Aylsham is situated off the A140 junction at Henry Page Road, Aylsham. Postcode: NR11 6UE.
The Nosebag Café and gift shop
The gift shop is now open and the cafe is offering takeaway drinks and a limited range of pre-packaged snacks.
Visitors will be able to enjoy the paddock walks, including one of the lake walks, however access to the playground, Red’s Shed and stables will be restricted until further notice.
Most paddocks are accessible, although some may be difficult to navigate in adverse weather conditions. The wildlife walk is also primarily a grass track and so can be difficult to navigate. There is a fully accessible, purpose built stable facility where ponies can be brought in and groomed, there is also a fully accessible WC as well as disabled parking. View our access statement.
