Redwings Aylsham

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!

We are delighted to say that Redwings Aylsham will be reopening to visitors on a trial basis from Saturday 8th August.

However there will be some changes to ensure we keep you all safe! These include:

We will be 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

Entry remains free but donations would be welcome towards the care of our lovely rescued residents.

There will be a one-way route around the centre to help everyone maintain social distancing.
