Most areas of the zoo is accessible for people using wheelchairs. Expect mostly Country Park like pathways with some uneven and mixed surfaces including roots in places, we are also set on a slight incline. Whilst we have many regular visitors who enjoy the zoo from their wheelchairs, some visitors have told us that they have found getting a wheelchair around is a hard push at times.
Because of the uneven and Country Park like nature of our pathways we do not recommend motorised mobility scooters or chairs, especially those with a narrow wheel base.


We regret dogs and pets are not allowed in the zoo - this includes guide dogs and assistant dogs as this has been known to upset the animals.

We recommend that, wherever possible, dogs are left at home rather than brought and left in the car as there is very little shade anywhere in the car park before 12 noon and none at all after that. We are unable to allow visitors free admission to wait in the carpark.

The coffee shop is open from 10.30am to provide you with hot and cold drinks, snacks and lunches. The food available includes sandwiches, soups, pastas, cakes, sausage rolls, baked potatoes, a daily special and much more. We can also provide lunchboxes for children, which include a sandwich, cake, crisps, fruit and a yoghurt.
Our gift shop sells a variety of souvenirs, semi precious stones and fossils, opening at 10.30am. Items available include soft toys, pictures, fridge magnets and keyrings. Find something to remind you of your favourite animal here at the zoo!

We regret that cards and cheques are not accepted in the coffee shop or gift shop

You can of course bring your own lunch and there are plenty of picnic benches dotted around the grounds.
