Visiting Wyre Forest updated 19 May 2020 

On Wednesday 20 May we will re-open our car park at 10am. We are sure many people will be keen to get out and about,  so to  avoid crowds,  please be  aware you may need to  be  prepared to make the  necessary  decision  to  turn around  if the car park looks busy, or is full,  and come another time.  

Currently, all our other visitor facilities are closed. We are working hard to find a way to start to reopen our other facilities but will only do so when we are happy that it is safe for our visitors and staff alike and that social distancing is possible. Please support us as we are doing  our  best  for  you:  be kind to  our  staff  and your fellow visitors.
