Your Animal Experience Bookings...

As of 21st March 2020, we made the difficult decision temporarily close the centre to visitors. This means that we have also had to postpone all animal experience bookings.

We appreciate that you were looking forward to to your animal experience(s) which unfortunately is unable to take place now due to COVID-19. 

We will of course be re-scheduling these experiences for when we are open again and all information on re-booking will be posted here, on this page.

We are currently working on a skeletal team of staff, whilst making sure that our animals still receive the highest levels of care, hence the reason we have set up this page - We are receiving a lot of questions and it is taking us longer than we would like to be able to reply to you all individually, so we would like to reassure you that:

  • All animal experiences that were booked from 31st March until further notice can be re-booked.

  • We will be in touch when restrictions have begun to lift, and when we have made sure our own internal policies allow for a period of adjustment for animals and staff.

  • We are currently dealing with a lot of queries and appreciate your patience should you have any individual questions.

If you purchased through Virgin, please get in touch with them as they are offering six month extensions to vouchers.

We look forward to welcoming you all once this passes.


From the staff and animals, stay safe and see you soon.
