Thank you for your interest in educational visits to Hinchingbrooke Country Park.

Most of the information on this page refers to school visits, but our activities can be made to suit all groups including home educators, Cub Scouts, Brownies, and youth groups. Please contact us with your enquiry.

For school visits, and many other educational events, we are working together with our friends at Fireflies Forest School to provide excellent tailored school visits.

We can organise a wide range of activities, to meet any curriculum need, in the varied habitats of our beautiful park.

If you require further information about the activities available, please contact us.

What does a visit include?

A visit to Hinchingbrooke Country Park includes:

  • a staff member to lead the activities. They will be either a ranger, forest school leader or an education volunteer.

  • all equipment needed to carry out the activities

  • health and safety information, including risk assessments

  • designated coach parking

  • free places for your leaders and helpers.

How do I make a booking?

If you decide to come for a visit you will need to:

  • provisionally book a date with us

  • confirm the date with your transport provider

  • confirm the date with us and select activities

  • write your own risk assessments

  • distribute health and safety information, timetables, activity instructions, maps, etc to group leaders and helpers

  • organise your groups, so all leaders know which children they are responsible for and the children know who their leader is

  • come and enjoy your day

  • give us feedback so we can continually improve and adapt what we offer.

What is the cancellation policy?

No charge.

How do I pay?

We will invoice you after your visit. Please make sure you let us know the number of children who attended on the day so we invoice you for the correct amount. The invoice may come directly from the park or from Fireflies Forest School, depending on who leads on your booking.

Do we have to book if we want to do our own activities?

Yes. Simply advise us of the date and time, so the duty manager is aware.
