How you can help
The natural world needs our help...and we need yours! Please consider making a donation to support our conservation, education and research work, both within our parks and across the world.
Stripes has been refurbished, rebranded and revitalised and is now our brand new Grasslands Restaurant. We sport an improved range of quality hot or cold meals as well as a range of healthy snacks. Each day we serve a selection of freshly made pastas, salads, stone-baked pizzas and homemade soup as well as delicious carvery baguettes.
Inside Grasslands is our Deli counter which serves freshly ground coffee to order as well as an array of sandwiches, Panini’s and freshly baked treats such as muffins, biscuits and pastries.
