Exciting times!

Our new-look centre coming soon!

Our Wolseley Centre is currently undergoing redevelopment. Whilst the grounds are still open to the public, the visitor centre is closed for the duration of the works. Our programme of events are still running but all sessions are held outside. More info here 

The Wolseley Centre, the Trust’s home since 2003, redevelopment, will see the creation of a new café with stunning views over the lake to enrich the visitor experience, a learning pod, new car park offering more spaces, improved interpretation and introducing new features across the well-visited site. The new-look centre will be open April 2019.
