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

It's Swan upping time on the River Thames! This is where the Queen's Swan Marker, David Barbour, travels up the Thames with the Vintners and Dyers companies catching swans and doing health checks on them Those not belonging to the Vintners or Dyers belong to the Queen, one of whose titles is Seigneur of the Swans. We asked David if he'd do our family of swans on the lake but they can only do swans on the river itself. They will be sailing down our stretch of the Thames later in the week. ... See MoreSee Less

You'll find the bees in the observation hide behind the Lemur enclosure. ... See MoreSee Less
