Berkshire the cosiest place to be this winter

The Living Rainforest is offering visitors a safe haven from the wind and rain of November in its tropical Amazonica house.

Having closed for one month, The Living Rainforest, which is funded by the ReDiscover venture, is now open and ready to receive visitors keen to sample the warmth of the Amazonian climate. With the average temperature around 22°C, staff at the rainforest ecosystem are encouraging parents not to hide children away indoors, but to come and enjoy the warmest place in England this winter.

“The Living Rainforest is not just a summer attraction, visitors can take advantage of a warm habitat all year round, even when other attractions are closed for winter,” said Karl Hansen, director of The Living Rainforest. “Our environment is a great respite from the cold snap we’ve been promised this November and December.”

“Children spend too much of the winter cooped up inside watching television or playing computer games. The Living Rainforest is a great way for parents to get their kids active and learn about the world we live in. Our exhibitions give visitors a chance to explore a rainforest ecosystem and discover how human impact is changing the environment.”
