Deer at Wollaton Hall

Wollaton Park is home to two herds of deer - 90 Red and 120 Fallow. Do not approach, touch or feed as they can be dangerous. Keep dogs under control as owners of dogs worrying the deer will receive a fine of up to £1,000. Take note of seasonal deer activity such as rutting and calving.

Deer Calving Season (March-May)

During the calving season, deer can be aggressive in defending their space and protective of young deer. Please exercise your dog on a lead whilst in the park. 

Please take care when driving through the Park as it a busy heritage site with free roaming deer, the strict speed limit at all times is 15 mph.

Thank you for your co-operation during calving season.
