About Us

The Living Rainforest near Newbury in Berkshire is part of the Trust for Sustainable Living, an educational charity as well as a popular ecological visitor attraction.  We welcome over 95,000 visitors a year including over 25,000 children on school trips.

Our vision is to create wonder and curiosity about the natural world and inspire all our visitors to work towards a sustainable future for everyone.

Visitors can experience the sights, sounds and smells of a lush tropical rainforest environment including free-ranging birds, reptiles and butterflies whilst learning how plants, animals, cultures, economies, and human needs are all linked.

With the Covid-19 pandemic affecting everybody’s lives, we took the decision to open this online site to help raise vital funds for our education, conservation, and global sustainability initiatives.

We hope you have an enjoyable experience.
