Why we love Robin Hill so much is simple to answer – it has so much to offer and is totally unbeatable on the fun stakes (not just for the kids either). Discover the rolling parkland, natural woodland and countryside gardens for exploration, adventure and entertainment. Not only that but the park comes alive throughout the year for an incredible calendar of daytime and evening events.
Discover Robin Hill…88 acres of rolling parkland, natural woodland and countryside gardens for exploration, adventure and entertainment.
Robin Hill is an exceptional place; a hidden gem on the Isle of Wight. The park is one of the Island’s most popular attractions.
Beautiful open parkland leads to woodland trails that meander through curated gardens featuring sculptures, tumbling water features, ponds, bridges and an extensive botanic collection. A tranquil stroll wouldn’t be complete without spotting one of the colourful tails of its resident peacocks. The birds are accustomed to the park’s many guests, as well as visiting four-legged friends; dogs are welcomed throughout the open season, with the Lower Valley being a particularly popular spot for a game of catch.
Fly through the park’s NEW Falconry Experience Centre! The new centre is set to become the home of 28 birds, across 16 different species, placed in the tranquil beauty of the peaceful woodland.
Burn off some energy on the treetop canopy walkways, adrenalin-inducing Jungle Heights adventure nets, epic rides, 4D cinema and plenty more outdoor play options for the whole family including Africa Adventure playground and Hill Billy Slides. You won’t want to miss the exhilarating quarter mile downhill toboggan ride either!
As well as the daily falconry displays at the park, Robin Hill plays host to an incredible calendar of events throughout the year. From cultural evenings such as the Chinese New Year celebrations which feature beautifully lit woodland walkthroughs and traditional activities; to high-energy summer events with party vibes to keep the whole family entertained. The park is also home to an 800 seat Woodland Amphitheatre which sits amidst towering trees in the heart of the woodland!
Robin Hill offers such a variety of experiences that there truly is something for everyone, and always something new to discover.
