Opening Times & Prices

Please note:

Following a few cases of bird flu, the government has put an Avian Influenza Protection Zone in place to help us to protect our birds from bird flu. Although this strain is not harmful to humans, it is to birds, so to limit the chances of any mixing between wild migrating birds and our resident birds we won’t be offering our bird feed talks or offering any duck food in our shop at this time. Our Wader Aviary will also be closed from the 23rd November.  We will keep you updated on any other changes.

 Opening times

There’s no need to pre-book a ticket to our park but you are more than welcome too if you like planning ahead (or just really like tickets!) If you would like to book in advance to guarantee your space then book online here.
