Wildlife and natural areas

With over 35 acres of gardens and arboretum at Jodrell Bank, there’s plenty to explore!

The gardens are managed in such a way as to encourage wildlife and increase our biodiversity. We have wildflower areas for insects and small mammals to thrive, natural pond areas and a netted Apiary for our honey bee hives.

We ask all visitors to turn off electrical equipment whilst on site and so it becomes a haven of natural sounds and sights to relax in and explore.
