Things to see and do at Foxbury
Foxbury is a 150-hectare conservation site, with a rich dry and wet heathland, woodland, wetland, ponds and scrub that attracts specialised wildlife. It sits on the edge of East Wellow and adjacent to Bramshaw Commons and is open for special events only.
Visiting Foxbury for events
Our events aim to help visitors get closer to nature. Foxbury can be explored via miles of safe and accessible all-weather gravel tracks within the site, ideal for family walks, running, fitness, cycling, and horse riding.
Perfect for children
Foxbury also has a 'base camp', perfect for younger children who can do den building, use a compost loo and participate in some '50 things to do before you're 11¾' activities.
