Paddocks and Exhibition
In the February half term and again from Easter right through to New Year a small group of reindeer are cared for down at the Reindeer Centre in Glenmore. The Paddocks are perfect for children and for visitors who are unable to go on the Hill Trip. They are wheelchair and pushchair accessible, and as well as being able to see the reindeer, there is lots of information about every aspect of reindeer and quizzes for children. This is the perfect alternative for those who can’t take part in our Hill Trips due to the weather or difficult terrain, offering a personal introduction to the reindeer in the more sheltered conditions in the glen.
Please note that whilst you will get a close up view of the reindeer here, there is no direct contact with them and no opportunity to feed them.
To reduce crowding in the Paddocks, we are offering timed entry slots throughout the day – you are welcome to spend as long as you like in the Paddocks once you have arrived. We recommend allowing around 30 minutes to look round. Tickets are best booked online, or we can take bookings in the shop if capacity allows – in holiday seasons please do book in advance!
In December, on weekends prior to Christmas, and the last few days before Christmas, the Paddocks are open for “Christmas Fun in the Paddocks” – please click here for more information.
Adults (17+): £4.00
Children (3-16): £3.00
Children aged 2 & under are free.
***Please note: Our Paddocks will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and the Reindeer Centre itself will then be closed from Monday 8th January 2024 – reopening for the season on Saturday 10th February 2024.***
***Additionally, the Paddocks and Exhibition will be CLOSED entirely for several months for building work, potentially in 2024 – the start date is yet to be confirmed. ***
