Perivale Wood is one of Britain’s oldest private nature reserves and a bird sanctuary since 1905. Keeping it safe and intact means that access is restricted to Society members but we have an April Open Month, with three or four days when the public can come along and visit us, plus many natural history events for the public throughout the year.


We have a programme of Members’ Days throughout the year when Selborne Society members can visit the wood. Click on the button below to view the Selborne Society’s guide to events at Perivale Wood, which includes the Members’ Days schedule for the coming month.

“Selborne is the secret, private parish inside each one of us.”
― David Elliston Allen, The Naturalist in Britain
