KS1 Sessions

It’s your choice to be as active or relaxed as you like during your visit.

You’re welcome to stroll around our wheelchair friendly 140 acres, or enjoy a ride on the road or rail train.

Digital maps of the zoo are situated at various points throughout the park or you can download paper copies. Our wet weather map gives details of indoor picnic areas and dry places to shelter should the clouds open!

So much more than the animal collection...

  • Spacious grassy picnic areas to spread yourselves out
  • Adventure playgrounds (for boisterous under 12s)
  • A range of kiosks for hot snacks and refreshments
  • Four toilet blocks all with disabled facilities
  • Souvenirs, snacks and postcards on sale at our gift shops
  • Qualified First Aiders on hand for emergencies
  • Free road train to save weary legs!

Where to eat

We have two indoor picnic areas should it pour with rain, or picnic benches and lawns if the sun shines. The large cedar tree behind the main house is a big favourite.

Unfortunately, picnic lunches cannot be consumed in Cafe Graze.

Space is definitely at a premium so we advise that packed lunches are either carried by students on the day, or left on the coach to be collected when needed.

Animal Behaviour Conference: The staff were great and made the session very interactive for the students. This is one of the reasons why we come back every year. Many thanks.Bianca Junge, 7th June 2019
