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.
Aviaries close at 2pm every day for the welfare of our birds.
We use quality ingredients from local producers and aim to serve flavoursome food to enjoy time and time again.
All profits generated in the café go directly into helping the animals in our care.
As a leading Centre for Animal Welfare we are committed to delivering the highest standards of animal welfare to the animals in our care.
Profits from our café form a significant contribution towards the funding of these services.
As such our policy is to be inclusive and cater for all sections of society, providing extensive vegetarian and vegan options whilst sourcing any meat and dairy from local, high welfare farming systems.
We politely ask that visitors do not bring picnics so as not to tempt our birds and also to reduce the risk of litter blowing around the site and potentially harming our animals. Please support us in the café.
When Layla arrived at Raystede we were astonished by her condition. This year we have had 1,076 requests to take in dogs, like Layla, who can no longer be cared for by their owners.
This is an animal welfare crisis.
