Bat walks at Polesden Lacey

Discover these wonderful creatures on our Ranger-guided walks. See the bats dart and dive and hear their ‘silent’ nocturnal calls with special detectors. Every Wednesday in August from 8.30-10.30pm

  • Booking essential

The Polesden Lacey estate provides an important habitat for bats, with many species using the grounds to roost in the winter and to feed at night.

After a short talk on bats and the detectors that will be used, the rangers will take you on a guided walk looking and listening out for bats swooping across the night sky within the gardens.
