Kids go free for Christmas!

Join us over the Christmas period and spend the day with our amazing animal residents here at the zoo. Our animals will be enjoying the Christmas spirit too with gifting galore throughout the month!

Come and meet Santa in his very special winter grotto made from up-cycled and recycled materials. Take away a gift, see where Rudolph and his gang hang out at the reindeer stables and make some great memories.

There is so much to do at the zoo with activities including, roasting chestnuts, warm mulled wine and buttery beer. Enjoy being greeted by our visiting jingle bell ponies and donkeys, and join us for some Christmas crafts. On selected dates you can also have your face painted too!*.

We also have Christmas carolling on selected dates** and seasonal fayre in the Wildheart Café, including an optional breakfast with Santa! (additional charge applies).

Don’t forget we also have a range inspired Christmas gifts in the Wildheart Shop too – what better gift to give the person that has everything than a big cat or lemur experience, a membership or even adopt one of animals on their behalf! Pick up a gift certificate whilst you are with us.

And if that’s not enough enter a daily prize draw on our special Christmas at the Zoo dates to win the chance to feed our lions with a Christmas Dinner!!!

*30th November – 7th December – 14th December

**Capella singers Harmonix and The Boogie Woogie Sisters will be joining us on 14th December for a special festive carolling treat

Please note that the zoo classifies children as those who are 3-14 – whilst we appreciate this time of year we all feel a little child like don’t be offended if we ask you for ID 😉
