Our Park Visitor Centre now hosts a larger café and exciting new ‘Discovery Centre’ providing a stimulating and dynamic indoor experience. Our shop has a good range of toys, gifts and crafts for sale. In our timber longhouses, we run regular traditional and modern craft courses including basketmaking, chainsaw carving, stickmaking, beekeeping, wool spinning and much much more. We also have meeting and conference facilities and can host birthday parties as well so there’s something for everyone at Palacerigg!

Outside you can go wild on the adventure playground, or explore the nature trails and climb to the heights of the treetop walkway and enjoy the bird’s-eye view of buds, branches and leaves.

The park has 300 hectares of grassland, moorland, woodland and ponds ensuring a haven for wildlife and providing a great day out for all ages and abilities. Bring your bike, boots or horse and get exploring! You may also want to get involved in our Palacerigg Volunteer Group who meet regularly and work with the animals or in the woods and trails around the park.

Palacerigg's animal collection is unique in Scotland and provides an opportunity to see many rare breeds livestock in addition to other friendly farm animals. Rare breeds include Exmoor ponies, Boreray sheep, Bagot goats, pigs, Scots Grey and Scots Dumpy chickens. You can also feed the animals yourself.
