School Tours:

This type of visit is suitable for primary and secondary schools along with Scout groups, Brownies and Girl Guide groups too.

Learning becomes interactive when the students take part in a 45 minute handling session with some of our education team during their school/group tour!

Information is tailored to suit the age group of the students and they are encouraged to ask questions as they embark on a guided tour of our zoo, learning about everything from what the animals eat to how they shed their skin and how they catch their prey to their defense mechanisms and much more!

After their educational tour and handling, students then have the opportunity to have even more fun in our indoor soft play area and are free to use both our indoor and outdoor picnic areas!
