Let us look after your little monkeys

Keeping your kids entertained during the school holidays might sometimes feel like wrangling wild animals, so why not let the professionals take over?

Every school holidays we run a holiday programme for kids from 5 to 12. They’ll get to meet our animals, learn from our specially trained Zoo staff and get sneak peeks behind the scenes.

Every day of the Zoo Holiday programme is s filled with a new action packed theme, so you can book for one day, or choose a few days that suit.

The kids will have an unforgettable holiday experience, and be inspired about animals and conservation, all while having fun getting stuck into exciting activities.
