Birthday parties at the zoo, available for a minimum of 10 children – book your special day today! We currently offer two types of party; a Zoo Party and a Leaping Lemurs Soft Play Party.
Enjoy a party to remember here at the zoo! Our unique birthday party package includes a 30-minute tour of the zoo, a 30-minute animal handling session, a private room to enjoy your party, a party box of food, plus the birthday child and one friend will have the opportunity to feed our lemurs!*
The tour options are:
– Castle Zoo
– Farmyard Friends
– Monkeys, Lemurs and Friends
– Bird Aviary Walk
– Search for the Wolves and Bears
The tours above are listed in order of increasing age suitability; the Castle Zoo is most popular amongst our youngest birthday children who enjoy this petting zoo experience, and the latter three are recommended for older children.
The party box of food for each child includes a sandwich, packet of crisps, yoghurt, a piece of fruit (typically, an apple or banana), small packet of gummy sweets, fun size chocolate bar and some juice.
Please advise of any special dietary requirements for any of the children at least three days prior to your visit.
Parties are normally held between the hours of 12 PM until 5:00 PM, during the following two-hour slots: 12 PM – 2 PM and 3 PM – 5 PM.
You will start your birthday experience with a private tour of the zoo followed by a very special lemur feeding. It’ll then be time to touch and hold a few of our handling animals, including the fluffy mammals and the scaly reptiles. Your birthday party will end with a party box of food and exclusive use of our party room which can be decorated by your party organiser whilst the handling session is underway if you so choose. All wrapped up in two hours, your birthday party will be a very special day indeed.
For prices, please call the office on 01506 870000 or speak to our staff at the ticket desk during your next visit. As at March 2018, price is £11.50 per child, minimum 10 children.
