Groombridge Place has lovely walled gardens overlooking a 17th century moated manor house. The Enchanted Forest has something for all ages from Crusoe's World with its tree houses and rope bridge. The boardwalk also in the forest is a popular play area with its zip wire and rope swings. The giant tree swings are popular with young and old alike. Two birds of prey displays daily Tue to Sun and Bank Holiday Monday. Don't miss our famous Zedonk (half Zebra and half Donkey).

We had an excellent visit to Groombridge Place today. The new TreeTop Walk was very exciting for myself and the kids (12, 10 and 7). It's definitely worth paying the extra to do it. I probably would recommend for very young children AND it is...More
