Mini-beast Safari 2019 @ Highfield Park Visitor Centre

The Highfield Park Trust Mini-beast Safari is an educational event and will be ticketed in order that numbers can be restricted. We want the participants to get as much as they can from this wonderfully excilerating experience, which has captivated both young and old alike. It is run from the Visitor Centre and, although a recent addition to the events itinerary, it has always been well supported. We advise that you book early to avoid disappointment. Please note that a free car park is situated adjacent to the Visitor Centre.
