Animal experience

Duration: 40 minutes to 1 hour
Times: 10:30am and 12:30pm
Cost: £90.00 per group (admissions included)
Group size: 10 to 30 children
Age range: 5 years and over
Location: Indoor

Our Animal experience gives children the chance to get up close with some of our friendliest animals, such as rabbits, lizards and snakes. We have found that this is especially great for younger children and groups with additional support needs.

For groups above 15 children, the session will be split into two half hour encounters where half the group can explore the zoo while half sit for the experience and then swap over. This will ensure an exciting and fun session is experienced fully by every child.

While the individual animals may vary from experience to experience, we will provide a variety of interesting species.

If you wish to book an animal experience, please email
