The Animal Ark
The Animal Ark is a Centre dedicated to family entertainment. We like to think that we offer something for all ages. For the kids there's lots of adventure play, including climbing towers, slides and swings. Enjoy a boat wreck on a sandy beach, a zip wire for big kids, a crooked castle with climbing wall, bouncy castle, trampolines, tiny tots adventure play and lots of green space to run off that excess energy.
Enjoy feeding our goats and pigs and cuddling our pets at Keeper Talk Time when you can learn about our animals and get to close to many.
For the more adventurous there's a peaceful country walk where you can see deer, highland cattle, wallabies, sheep, llamas and lots of waterfowl and natural wildlife. We have tea rooms with a terrace and pretty gardens where you can sit and relax, alternatively bring a picnic and eat al fresco in one of our picnic areas!
Dont miss the well stocked gift shop for a momento or special gift. We welcome youth and group visits.
