We’re absolutely delighted to be able to announce that both Robin Hill and our sister park, Blackgang Chine, will be re-opening from Wednesday, 19th May 2021.
In line with the proposed lifting of lockdown across the country, we’re taking steps to ensure all our guests are able to return to the parks for a safe, comfortable experience and will be following government guidance at all times. We’re sad to be missing out on Easter this year; but all our teams will be working hard over the coming months to ensure both parks are ready to welcome you all back for more exploration, adventure and entertainment!
We’re planning an exciting kick off to the 2021 season with the return of our most popular event ever! Sky High will float back into the park with a full programme of hot air balloon activity, culminating in spectacular Night Glow performances on our picturesque, open-air Lower Valley. Last year’s event sold out and Sky High 2021 will also be a limited capacity event. Tickets will sell quickly, so booking online in advance is essential and tickets will be released very soon! To make re-opening even more special, we’re bringing some elements from our Chinese New Year celebrations into this event too. Keep an eye on our website and social media for all the latest updates.
Discover Robin Hill…88 acres of rolling parkland, natural woodland and countryside gardens for exploration, adventure and entertainment.
Robin Hill is an exceptional place; a hidden gem on the Isle of Wight. The park is one of the Island’s most popular attractions.
Beautiful open parkland leads to woodland trails that meander through curated gardens featuring sculptures, tumbling water features, ponds, bridges and an extensive botanic collection. A tranquil stroll wouldn’t be complete without spotting one of the colourful tails of its resident peacocks. The birds are accustomed to the park’s many guests, as well as visiting four-legged friends; dogs are welcomed throughout the open season, with the Lower Valley being a particularly popular spot for a game of catch.
Burn off some energy on the treetop canopy walkways, adrenalin-inducing Jungle Heights adventure nets, epic rides, 4D cinema and plenty more outdoor play options for the whole family including Africa Adventure playground and Hill Billy Slides. You won’t want to miss the exhilarating quarter mile downhill toboggan ride either!
As well as the daily falconry displays at the park, Robin Hill plays host to an incredible calendar of events throughout the year. From cultural evenings such as the Chinese New Year celebrations which feature beautifully lit woodland walkthroughs and traditional activities; to high-energy summer events with party vibes to keep the whole family entertained. The park is also home to an 800 seat Woodland Amphitheatre which sits amidst towering trees in the heart of the woodland!
Robin Hill offers such a variety of experiences that truly is something for everyone, and always something new to discover.
* Dogs on leads are welcome.
* Rides and attractions have height restrictions and operating times vary.
Please note that the Squawk birds are roaming the park most weekends and during peak periods only.
