The Conservatory is home to our tropical plant collection with plants and animals from all around the world. The plants are divided into the continents: South America, Africa, Australasia and Asia. There is also a large cactus collection along with a banana grove and interactive rainforest tree. Both our Animal Keepers and Horticultural staff run various events and activities throughout the year from the conservatory. It is the gateway to the ornamental gardens and zoo.
Situated in the Conservatory, it is the first port of call for visitors to gain entry to the Zoo and gardens and receive information about the park. The gift shop is packed with a wide range of souvenirs, gifts, toys and confectionery as well as pocket money toys for children.
