We know that the key to having a positive experience with us is to ensure that everything which you get is to the standard which your kids can understand and appreciate, which is why we have implemented the following:

What Primary Schools Should Expect:

  • 22 classroom talks in our education building, which we will tailor to your age requirements.  Choose your topic, give us the age of your kids and we’ll think of the rest.
  • 170+ animal specific talks available at pre-booked times!  Just choose your animal from the animal a – z.
  • Somewhere to put your lunches (in the museum).
  • The ability for you to tailor and plan your visit in advance through the use of our ever expanding set of suggested itineraries.
  • Book add-on’s to your visit including goody bags, talks and activity books.


Entrance fees

Children £8.50 each with 1 free adult for every 5 paying children and all additional adults costing £8.50 each.  We do not charge for members, providing they bring their membership cards, however these membership holders do not count towards the children adding up to free adult tickets.

    Important Information

    Coaches & Parking

    We offer free parking which can be used for parents dropping their children off, or of course also for coaches. As coaches pull in to our car park, they must turn right in to the coach park where we have ample space for parking. If you come with a smaller coach or mini bus which drops the children off at the car park gate, please ensure that the vehicle is then moved to the coach park for the duration of your visit.

    Group Behaviour

    Please remember that we are a venue with live animals and it is important that these are all shown the level of respect they deserve. We are also open to the public and we have to ensure that everyone is able to have an enjoyable and productive day with us. As such we ask that you follow a number of simple rules for your group:

    • Walk around the park – do not run.
    • Even though we are an outdoor park, to ensure that our animals are comfortable we ask that children use their “indoor voices” and do not shout or scream.
    • Feeding of animals is not allowed unless it is food specifically provided by our staff as many of our animals are on strict diets. The wrong food in some cases could kill animals with allergies or health issues.
    • When using walk through enclosures, do not try to get the whole group in one go. Allow the door to close between entrances – do not hold doors open. You are also required to follow all instructions and restrictions from staff in these enclosures.
    • Wash hands regularly, especially before eating.
    • Adults must remain with groups of children at all times during the visit.
    • Use bins and rubbish bags provided to you for any rubbish produced by your group.
    • Day visitors and other schools have just as much right to be at the park as your group, please be respectful of other people during the visit and ensure that groups are split up as not to restrict movement or viewing throughout the park.
