If this is your first visit to Bedgebury, then you should definitely plan to spend the whole day here. There is a lovely modern cafe, with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the lake. Alternatively, bring a picnic and make use of one of the many picnic tables around the site. 


Zog activity packs are available from the Visitor Centre at a cost of £3. In our opinion it is not necessary to purchase one of these to enjoy the trail.  


Dogs are welcome at Bedgebury. They need to be kept on leads in the Pinetum, car park, visitor centre and play areas. Cycling is not allowed in the Pinetum, car park or visitor centre area.


Please note: Unlike all the other activities listed on this website, a visit to Bedgebury isn't free as such. Whilst there isn't an admission charge, there is a significant parking fee. In our opinion it is totally worth it! Bedgebury does not make a profit and all parking fees are re-invested back into the huge site.
