Priory Farm is set amidst stunning countryside … visit our Discovery Walk and explore it for yourself!
The family attraction appeals to visitors of all ages. There’s more now than ever before, with a surprise around every corner and far-reaching views over the Downs. (You can enjoy them while the kids are busy trying to spot the Police helicopter and air ambulance at Redhill Aerodrome in the distance.)
And when you are ready for a cuppa and a bit to eat, call in at Wendy's cabin which sells a yummy selection of food, drinks and ice cream. Wendy's is open every day, weather permitting.
The nature trails are designed especially for the youngsters, and they love them; a picture-based one suitable for younger children and a fact-gathering quiz for nature detectives up to around 12 years old (but secretly enjoyed by teens and grown-ups too). Every child gets the chance to win a £10 voucher in our monthly quiz draw.
One of the most amazing things about The Discovery Walk is the fish bell! All you do is ring the special bell and watch as the water becomes alive with hundreds of carp. Don't forget the buy some of our approved fish food.
Due to the current regulations this feature will not yet be opening as social distancing is not possible on the ship, watch this space for more info
A group of guinea fowl is called a confusion - and you'll see why when you meet our very own family of feathered friends!
After all that exercise you'll be ready for a visit to Wendy's Ice Cream Parlour, with eight flavours of ice cream for the kids and a reviving coffee for mum and dad.
Our pure-bred bantams are very pretty and enjoy living at Cluckingham Palace alongside their good friends. They roam freely in their spacious enclosure and snuggle up at night, safe and warm!
Climb into our Giant's Chair and you really are king and queen of the castle! Survey the views from your hilltop vantage point then rush off through the orchard to the wibbly wobbly bridge.
Successful Nature Detectives who complete the trail are in with a chance of winning a £10 voucher in our monthly quiz draw.
From frosty cobwebs to cheerful daffodils, summer flowers to autumn hues, The Discovery Walk is different each time you visit.
To fully enjoy the Walk, allow at least an hour for your visit, especially if little ones are looking for clues on the Nature Trail. If you would like to feed the ducks and fish, please purchase the “balanced diet” food that we sell. We regret that we can’t allow you to bring your own.
