The Aldingbourne Country Centre

The Aldingbourne Trust invites you and your family to our Country Centre near Chichester to get back to the important things in life like laughing, eating, drinking, and playing together.

To get up close to our lovely animals, explore our accessible countryside park, and to help one of the most innovative charities in the south to continue making a huge difference in the lives of adults with learning disabilities or autism in our community. You’re helping others just by coming and enjoying a great, value for money, day out. Isn’t that amazing?

So, what can you do at our Great Day Out?

Open Farm

Our Open Farm is home to a variety of different animals, including chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, donkeys, ponies, alpacas, pigs, goats, guinea pigs, and peacocks. All the animals that live on the farm have their own individual personalities. Most are incredibly friendly, but a few are a bit more mischievous around the farm! Nevertheless, they all enjoy meeting new people and saying hello.

Woodland Walk

Our Woodland Walk is a fantastic place to adventure – we have wooden play areas between trees where you can climb, balance and jump. The woods are a great place to learn about nature and wildlife.

Play all Day

There is so much here to do with your little ones. Ride on aRTie Aldingbourne Express, get lost in our maze, climb in our indoor Soft Play areas, speed down our indoor slide, and so much more.

School Holiday Events

Visit us in the school holidays for a jam-packed events plan! Fancy splashing about in a Foam Parteeee, or meeting some creepy crawlies at our Reptiles Day? We have an event for everyone – visit our Events page on our website for upcoming events.

Quarry Cafe

Relax in our Quarry Café, where you can enjoy a homemade cake and hot drink or even a delicious lunch – all freshly prepared using the best local ingredients and served by a friendly team, including those supported by the trust.


Need a little extra help? We are fully wheelchair accessible and have plenty of Blue Badge car parking spaces in our car park. We have a Changing Places toilet on the ground level and an accessible toilet in our Quarry Cafe. For more information, our Accessibility Guide is on our website.
