Visitor Centre

If you have never been to Bushy Park or Home Park, then you might want to start at the Visitor Centre to find out all about these two historic parks, which are both Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The Friends operate the Visitor Centre in partnership with The Royal Parks and provide a welcoming and friendly source of advice and guidance to visitors to the two parks. Talk to our knowledgeable volunteers. They will be delighted to tell you what they know about the parks’ histories and the parks’ flora and fauna.

NOTE: The Visitor Centre is currently closed from 5 November until 2nd December due to the lockdown. Our online shop remains operational if you still need to buy Christmas cards, calendars or other small gift items.
 
UPDATE.  We aim to reopen on Thursday 3rd December and operate on most days (10.30am  – 1pm ) leading up to Christmas.  As before the lockdown, our opening is both dependent on volunteer availability as well as fine weather as we will be operating outside only for the time being.

When We Are Open

Unfortunately the Visitor Centre is closed from 5 November until 2nd December due to the lockdown. Our online shop remains operational if you still need to buy Christmas cards, calendars or other small gift items. We will reopen as soon as we can.
When open the Visitor Centre is operated by our uniformed volunteers.

Location

The Visitor Centre is located at the Pheasantry in the middle of Bushy Park next to the main entrance to the Woodland Gardens, alongside the café and café car park. N.B. On The Royal Parks map of Bushy Park the Visitor Centre may be referred to as Information Point.

Please see this map for details: Map of Bushy Park

Discovery Zone

At the Visitor Centre you will find maps, displays of natural items from the parks, video and photographic images of the parks, wildlife description boards, and a wide range of information leaflets about the history and natural environment of the parks.

Children have a dedicated “Discovery Zone” where they can draw pictures and examine specimens. Our unique display barrow contains deer antlers, bird nests, and the Big Pine Cone which can weigh up to 2.5 kilograms. Younger children will receive a sticker to wear when they show interest in our displays.

Visitors can also purchase locally produced honey from hives in the park, greetings cards, fold-out information leaflets from the Field Studies Council, and other Friends’ souvenir merchandise. All the profits from sales go towards the Friends appeal funds which are used to support projects in the two parks.
