Potteric Carr

The green heart of Doncaster

Potteric Carr is a wild oasis just waiting to be explored. Now nestling between motorway and railway, it's a remnant of the vast fenland that once stretched all the way across the Humber basin to the coast. Around each corner you'll discover a true mosaic of habitats, from reedbeds swaying gently under big open skies to winding woodland trails and networks of ponds teeming with life.
During summer, the meadows are full of butterflies and abuzz with insects, while winter brings the magic of thousands of starlings creating incredible aerial displays. Listen carefully and you might even hear the booming of the elusive bittern...
Start your day at the visitor centre - the perfect place to pause for a hot drink and browse the gift shop. From birdwatching to forest tots, discover amazing wildlife experiences at Potteric Carr.

Go Ape @ Normanby hall

A stately backdrop to your Go Ape experience at Normanby Hall. One of our newer locations, this Treetop Challenge and Treetop Adventure course offer something a little different. No two crossings are the same - so you’re going to have to work harder as you navigate each crossing which will push you in different ways. The Challenge course will test you with free falling Tarzan Swings, speedy zip wires and the ever-tricky stirrups. We’ve gone big and bold on the Adventure course too - you’ll find this one higher than our other locations!
