Enjoy a game of hide & seek this summer with The Donkey Sanctuary's adoption donkeys.

The adoption donkeys love playing hide and seek with grooms’ and vets’ equipment and they now need your help finding the items that our lovable adoption donkeys have hidden around the sanctuary.

Take this entertaining trail with family and friends, and as well as meeting hundreds of friendly donkeys grazing blissfully in their summer paddocks, you’ll also be rewarded for your help. The trail is just £3 including a treat on completion and you will make our grooms and vets very happy!

Make the most of your visit and join a guided tour of the sanctuary, enjoy a fascinating donkey talk, interact with donkeys on their daily walk and catch the donkey grooming demonstration – you’re bound to love it just as much as they do.

Come rain or shine you’ll also want to explore the exciting new indoor attractions, where you’ll discover just why donkeys are so special through fun, interactive displays in the new Exhibition Barn, Understanding Donkeys Zone and Dr Svendsen’s Hut. And the fun doesn’t stop there; outdoors you’ve got the maze, farm-themed play area and nature centre.

Take a moment to relax in The Kitchen restaurant and before heading home, pop to the new Gift Shop for donkey-design items to suit every pocket.


Entry and parking at the sanctuary is FREE. Dogs on leads are welcome.
