especially loved conversing with giraffes face to face and viewed the penguins in their enclosure where one cheeky devil grabbed hold of my partner's handbag strap and tried to walk off with her bag. Great interaction with the monkeys.

Sorry we don't do any discounts other than group discounts. If you buy e-tickets you save money and they are valid for 30 days from date of purchase. We are one of the lowest priced zoos in the UK.
