Visitor Information

From Monday 19th July midweek booking is not required but is recommended. We do advise booking in advance for weekends, holidays and event days to ensure entry.

Members do not need to book unless attending a ticketed event.

Wildlife World is currently undergoing essential maintenance and repairs so some of our animals have been moved temporarily. The enclosures are not fully accessible at this time but we have created a visitor route which means that you will be able to see most of our animals.
