The Living Rainforest Newbury

The living rainforest newbury








The Living Rainforest in Newbury saw us twice in the half term week, its safe to say we are a huge fan! For us as a family its a perfect wet weather day out, I can't bare soft play its always so busy when the weather is rubbish and I wasn't up for swimming. We had also been to the Milestone Museum quite recently so thought we would give The Living Rainforest in Newbury ago and we liked it so much we did it twice!

It appeals to both of the little lads, Tiger is really into his bugs and small creatures and Beaux adores ducks and birds and we are happy just not to have to set foot in a soft play!! The Living Rainforest isn't very big so you couldn't spend a whole day there but you could definitely spend a couple of hours wondering around the indoor rainforest, looking at plants, birds, reptiles, super cute little monkeys and my favorite the aquarium. Some of the birds are loose happily wondering around the rainforest and you are bound to spot some beautiful butterflies.

There is also a reasonable priced gift shop, simple restaurant and play ground which caters for both toddlers and older children. The admission for an adult is £9.95 and children are £8.45 (under 2's are free) the admission is actually an annual ticket so entry is free for a year!! This is great for us, Beaux could happily go every day if I let him, its a great mini day out for us when Tiger is at school during the week.

Top tips: Take wellies, it can get quite muddy! Wear light clothing as you would expect the rainforest is really warm and keep an eye out for the sloth which climbs in the vines above your head!!!
