Get yourself or a loved one up close and personal with these amazing birds!

You will have access inside the enclosure for up to 20 minutes where you will meet the Penguins on our beach, giving them a feed using their favourite fish.  This is a great way to get them right up close to you as you get to feed each individual animal by hand.  Please allow up to half an hour for the experience which includes time for a health and safety briefing before you begin, and up to around 20 minutes to feed the Penguins (this time depends entirely on how much the animals want to eat, and how quickly they eat).

When booking this experience you will have the choice of 1 of 3 time slots; 10:15 am, 1:00 pm or 3:00 pm however please note that during the later 2 feeds, you will be feeding the Penguins for the keeper during their feed talk and you may have an audience.

The price for this experience is £70 for one person, or £120 for 2 people, and gives each participant entry to the park along with up to 20 minutes of interaction with the Penguins.

Penguin Experience

For my birthday my parents had brought me a penguin feeding experience, which I have to say for the price was amazing, and to make it even better I was the only one doing the feed with the keeper. I have even had a photo of me stroking the penguin kizzi blown up and put on canvas.

I was given a 65th birthday present to feed the penguins. What a great day first at 10am I was able to help with walking the penguins around the park then into their enclosure where I fed them a bucketful of fish. A truly great experience

We had a lovely day at Wingham where my Auntie had a penguin experience. The keepers were very knowledgable about the animals and went out of their way to answer any questions. We enjoyed walking round the rest of the zoo. Overall a great day out.

My kids bought me a penguin experience for my 50th birthday. Penguins are great, so this was a very nice surprise.

The whole 20 minute experience was absolutely great & I would certainly do it again. Very enjoyable.

I booked up the experience and was pleased I picked a nice spring day for it. The penguin feeding experience was great, the keeper (Becky) was very friendly and knowledgeable, and even took some pictures for me.
All in all we have a really enjoyable time.

I searched everywhere for a penguin feeding experience for my 7 year old who loves penguins and Wingham was the only place near Essex/London that offered this for his age and at a reasonable cost. First off my little boy got to take the penguins out for a walk and then feed them. It was so amazing and his little face...worth every penny. The penguin keeper was so friendly and knowledgeable.
