  • Treetop Adventure: An hour of fun crossings and awesome zip wires await you on this magical Treetop Adventure! This course is a whole new way to get the family outdoors and build confidence while having fun. Suitable for anyone over 1m tall and aged between 4-10 years old.

Things to do in Tilgate Park:

Have a breather and refuel in the Walled Garden café, before heading out to explore the heritage parkland and Nature Centre.

You’ll find beautiful lawns, lakes, heather gardens and a Peace Garden. Go and say hello to the animals in the Nature Centre which is home to mongoose, meerkats, reindeers and otters, to name but a few.

A large children’s play area overlooks the lake and you can hire family boats (rowing boats, canoes and double sit on top kayaks) or single boats (stand up paddle boards and sit on top kayaks) if you’d like to get out and about on the lake.
