Redwings Aylsham

Lovable donkey duo Wiggins and Wacko, real-life Black Beauty Maya and resident troublemakers, the Gangsters, are just some of the 50 rescued residents ready to make your acquaintance at Redwings Aylsham in Norfolk.

Established in 1984, Redwings now cares for over 1,500 rescued horses, donkey, ponies and mules at its centres across the country – which includes Redwings Aylsham in Norfolk.

After making plenty of new four-legged friends, you can enjoy a relaxing stroll along the centre’s peaceful wildlife walks – perfect for keen ramblers and dog walkers! Hot drinks and warm lunches are available from Gulliver’s Café, and our gift shop is open with a wide range of souvenirs to browse, with all proceeds supporting the hundreds of rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in Redwings’ care. You can also learn about horses and even try your hand at running a rescue in our education centre Red’s Shed!

Most paddocks are accessible, although some may be difficult to navigate in adverse weather conditions. The wildlife walks are also primarily grass track and so can be difficult to navigate. There is a fully accessible, purpose-built stable facility, a fully accessible WC and disabled parking.

Redwings Aylsham is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm, with additional opening days in the summer. Please check our website for the most up to date opening information before visiting –

Entry and parking are free, but donations of all sizes can really support the charity’s work and we’re so grateful for anything you’re able to give.

Dogs on leads are welcome.
