Join our resident deer herd manager for a morning walk through the 200 acre deer park surrounding Raby Castle and learn about our herds of stunning deer, their behaviour throughout the seasons and their care.
Did you know? Raby Park is home to two species of deer: Red deer, the largest British wild land mammal, and the smaller fallow deer.
Watch out for our baby deer, born from May to July each year, you may be lucky enough to spot them in their natural habitat as part of this tour, along with other wildlife and birds who live in the Parkland.
The walk will be approx. 1 mile long. Arrive early and enjoy brunch in the Stables Cafe or stay for lunch after you’ve worked up an appetite on your walk.
The Cafe is open daily from 10am for ice creams, drinks, snacks, lunches and afternoon teas.
Please note: This event is unsuitable for pushchairs and suitable for ages 5-11 years.
Tickets should be booked in advance online to guarantee a place. Both children and adults require tickets.
