Woodchester Bat Experiences

Woodchester Bat Experiences

Woodchester Bat experiences offer visitors with an interest in natural history an exceptional opportunity to observe our bats.

First there is a visit to the bat observatory to see the bats in the roost above via the high definition monitors. This is accompanied by a talk about the bats and bat studies at Woodchester.

As dusk falls, visitors move into the Mansion to see the bats flying through the corridors and Gothic chapel, and then going outside to forage.

Dates for bat experiences will be advertised when known.
