The New Forest Reptile Centre
At The New Forest Reptile Centre, near Lyndhurst, we help protect rare snakes and lizards and encourage the re-introduction of these animals across the country. There are special outdoor ‘pods’ which provide a natural home to the sand lizard, smooth snake and adder. These reptiles can be difficult to see in the wild as they are rare and very secretive, so the New Forest Reptile Centre is a great place to see them close-up.
Open over the summer half-term holiday and certain days during the Summer school holidays. See our visitor information for details of our opening times.
