Tilgate Park and Nature Centre is run by Crawley Borough Council and has a variety of animals including many exotic, rare and endangered species; conservation is at the forefront of the attraction’s ethos.
The centre participates in international breeding programmes with a number of animals including bald ibis, Asian short-clawed otters and Utila’s spiny-tailed iguana. It has also been involved in the re-introduction of Fen raft spiders in the UK.
Entry to the park is free and it is just £2.50 per adult for entry into the nature centre; there is ample parking on site for coaches. The park also has several other attractions, including a Go Ape, craft centre, maze and beautiful walled gardens, and is set in 200 acres of stunning park and woodland, with three lakes.
