Book your free visit!

It is essential to book a ticket as visitor numbers are limited for the welfare of our animals, and to provide a better visitor experience.

The area around the lakes and the dog walk are currently closed due to the Project Terrapin construction.

Aviaries close at 2pm every day for the welfare of our birds.
