Things To Do In Lincolnshire
Hiding at the heart of Lincolnshire’s countryside, this truly wild adventure is not to be missed. Woodside Wildlife Park started its life in the late 90s when local man Neil Mumby purchased a derelict farm on the rural outskirts of Lincoln, with a plan to renovate the estate and use it to pursue his passion for falconry. Woodside Falconry and Conservation Centre threw open its doors in 2001. But by 2005, tropical butterflies and reptiles had joined the selective list of residents at the park, and the rest – they say – is history. Today, the park is home to an astonishing list of species from across the globe. With conservation at the heart of everything they do, the park offers the chance to get up close with these amazing animals while learning about what we can all do to protect them in the wild.

About 15 minutes from park
Woodside Wildlife Park can be found beside the village of Langworth, approximately ten kilometres east of Lincoln in the Lincolnshire countryside. If you’re heading here from other parts of the UK, you’ll need to use a network of A roads to traverse this rural corner of England – first by following signposted routes to Lincoln before heading out east along the A158. The park’s then just a right turn down a country lane once you pass though Langworth Village. If you’re planning to travel in via public transport then you could use the bus stops located in Langworth village, however it’s still half an hour’s walk to get to the park from these. Services stopping in the village include the 56 Interconnect route which joins Lincoln and Skegness, as well as the 50 route from Louth and the S146S from Market Rasen. There’s no railway station in the vicinity of Woodside Wildlife Park, however, you are able to catch a train into Lincoln and then transfer to one of the bus routes.
