Beale Park

What’s it all about?

Beale Park is an outdoor wildlife park about 40 mins drive from Marlow out past Reading. There is plenty enough to keep all ages of kids occupied for most of the day between the animals, play areas, large outdoor paddling pool, sand, train ride and other exhibits. It’s definitely worth the drive if you fancy a day out somewhere different.

I need to get some new pictures as the ones I have above don’t really do it justice – it’s worth looking at their website to see more www.bealepark.org.uk

We were very impressed today with this picture of a very big Koi Carp taken by our colleague Gillie in our inner lake (the big rectangular one). These clever fish swim up to you when they see you putting money into the food dispenser machines. ... See MoreSee Less

It's hard to decide whether it's summer or autumn this weekend. The old chestnut trees on our exit road (on the right as you drive out) are turning brown with loads of conkers (for people who remember conker fights) but it's warm and sunny still. Make the most of the last of the fading days of summer at Beale Wildlife Park! ... See MoreSee Less

In the days when crops were grown in the fields, they would have been stored and processed in the Tithe Barn, shown here. It's on the right just before you exit the park. It's stunning inside with some of the cross beams coming from decommissioned sailing ships. The names of the ships are carved into the timbers. The barn dates from around 1780 we think. ...
