BeWILDerwood is an award-winning wild and imaginative outdoor adventure park. With magical treehouses and hints of intriguing characters, BeWILDerwood brings a curious difference to The Broads. The concept, put quite simply, is one of child's play. The vision: to enhance an already striking natural playground and encourage children and their families to enjoy traditional, imaginative and healthy outdoor play together. A day at BeWILDerwood, means endless hours spent together with family and friends, exploring and engaging in the wild Norfolk landscape. Building dens with bracken and sticks, taking lazy boat rides across Scaaaary Lake, dressing up and joining in with the enchanting daily story telling; crossing Jungle Bridges and visiting Treehouses, whizzing down Wobbly Wires and getting befuddled in the marvelous Muddle Maze; snaking through the peaceful pathways and revealing treacherous trails – this is a world with more than a little sprinkling of fairy dust. BeWILDerwood is home to enchanting creatures such as Boggles, Twiggles, the Thornyclod Spider and vegetarian Crocklebogs! The setting for the book, "A Boggle at BeWILDerwood", by local children's author Tom Blofeld, gives children the chance to follow in the footsteps of the lead character Swampy, a 2ft Marsh Boggle with a taste for adventure. High in the trees there are miniature Twiggle villages and low in the marshes Boggle village life will captivate your imagination.
Access Card notes
When accompanying a disabled visitor, adult (18+) carers can visit the park free of charge. A carer is a person over the age of 18 who provides help and support to an individual who is in receipt of DLA (disability living allowance), PIP (personal independence payment) or a Blue Badge. The term carer should not be confused with a foster carer or care assistant – unless the person they are caring for receives DLA, PIP or a Blue Badge. In all cases, we ask to see proof of DLA, PIP or a Blue Badge at the gate. Access Cards with the '+1' symbol are accepted as proof for a free essential companion ticket.
- For anyone in your party that struggles with standing/queueing and needs additional support, we can provide fast-track entry at admissions so we can get them into the WILD woods quicker. Just show your Access Card to a member of the Twiggle Team when you arrive. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the structures in the park, we currently have no fast-track queuing systems in place. Our Park Rangers will be focusing on the safe operation of our structures, so all visitors will have to join the back of the queue. If an area of the park looks busy then we always recommend coming back later, there are 40 acres of natural woodland to explore so plenty of space.
- Our pathways are wheelchair friendly, however given the natural woodland setting it can be hilly and bumpy in sections. Our BeWILDerboats are not wheelchair accessible so for access into the park please follow the Treacherous Trail. The shortest and flattest journey into the park is then left at the end of the Treacherous Trail. The play structures within the park are tree-top based and only accessible via steps, therefore will not be suitable. We have plenty of inclusive activities that everyone can enjoy together such as our crafts, activities, face painting and Storytelling Shows. These areas are all accessible by wheelchair. Wheelchair users have free entry into the park.
- There are plenty of benches dotted around the park and along each path, so there's always a rest stop nearby! If your struggling to find a bench to rest at, just speak with one of our park rangers.
- There are 4 sets of toilets around the park: - Located at the bottom of the Car Park - Located at the end of the Treacherous Trail, to the left - Face Paint Pavillion - Munch Bar Please note the set at the Face Paint Pavillion does not have a wheelchair-accessible toilet. The nearest is located at the end of the Treacherous Trail, approximately 100m away. Adult changing mats are available in each wheelchair-accessible bathroom.
