Explore New Forest Reptile Centre

Housing a unique collection of all the native lizards, snakes, frogs and toads, including the adder, the only venomous species of snake living in Britain.

These reptiles can be difficult to see in the wild as they are rare and very secretive, so the Reptile Centre is a great place to see them close-up.

The ‘A Date with Nature’ project, a joint venture between The RSPB, the Forestry Commission, New Forest National Park Authority and Carnyx Wild gives visitors the opportunity to watch live footage from the ‘Feeder Cam’ that captures the goings on around the bird feeders near the Centre and footage from the 'Raptor Cam'.

For events, please visit the New Forest Events page.

Please note the centre is not open all year round. For more details refer to the visitor information.
