Why Are Snettisham Park’s Deer Safaris Popular With Visitors?
Opened to the public in 1986, Snettisham Park Farm has become a popular tourist destination primarily due to its unique deer safaris. Snettisham Park is home to a majestic herd of red deer, one of the largest deer species found in the UK. During your 45-minute deer safari, you’ll learn more about these beautiful creatures as you get up close and personal with them. Visitors may hand-feed and photograph the deer herd, which includes over 60 hinds and two stags. May through July are among the best times to visit for a deer safari because those are the calving months. You may be able to see spotted calves or the stags growing their new antlers before the rutting season. Deer safaris must be pre-booked, and visitors should arrive at least 30 minutes before their safari departure time for queuing.
Pony Riding and Other Farm Activities Your Family Will Love
Deer safaris are only some of what’s offered at Snettisham Park Farm. Pony riding is a popular Norfolk pastime at the farm. Other highlights of a visit include collecting and grading fresh farm eggs and maybe seeing new lambs being born or taking their first steps during the lambing season. During the spring and summer months, you may get the chance to bottle-feed a baby lamb. Children also love learning about pony grooming, as well as feeding and petting the farm’s many miniature goats, calves, pigs, ducks, rabbits, and tortoises. Visitors relish the memorable hands-on experiences presented at this working farm. Don’t miss the visitor centre and tearoom, where you can buy light refreshments or purchase fresh farm eggs to take home with you. There’s always plenty to see and do at Snettisham Park Farm!
Don’t Forget Your Wellies for These Scenic Walking Trails
Snettisham Park features three scenic walking trails for those who love exploring the great outdoors. Visitors are given guides upon arrival to help them choose which walking trail adventure best suits their interests. At about two-thirds of a mile, the Farming Trail is the shortest hike and perfect for those with small children. During this fascinating farmland walk, you’ll enjoy glimpses of the farm’s crops, livestock, and operations. If you’re looking for a slightly longer hiking trail, the Discovery Trail is about 1½ miles and gives visitors a peek at the local wildlife, including pheasants, partridges, hares, skylarks, and more. The Archaeological Trail is the longest hiking trail at 2½ miles and gives visitors more detailed facts about the farmland’s heritage, which includes a Roman villa, a Saxon settlement, and St. Thomas’ Chapel.
