Birthday Parties

Have an unforgettable birthday at Five Sisters Zoo!

We offer special birthday party packages here at the zoo. Available for between 10 and 25 children, we offer two different types of party: a Zoo Party and a Leaping Lemurs Soft Play Party.

Zoo 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 party room, a party box of food, plus the birthday child and one friend will have the opportunity to feed our lemurs!*

Parties must have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 children. The cost of the zoo party is:

  • £11.50 per child
  • 2 adults are admitted free for supervision, any further adults are charged at £9.95

Party slots are from 12pm to 2pm and 3pm to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

To book your party, please email bookings@fivesisterszoo.co.uk or call the office on 01506 870 000. A £50 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your booking. The remaining balance (as well as confirmation of numbers and any dietary requirements) are required at least one week prior to the party.

*Please note that the lemurs that you will feed will either be the ring-tailed lemurs, black and white ruffed lemurs, or brown lemurs. All species provide the same enjoyable experience and will decided by your tour guide on the day.

More Info…

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 with our youngest birthday children who enjoy the 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.

Parents are asked to provide a birthday cake, candles, matches and a knife, if desired. There is a CD player if you wish to bring music and you are welcome to play party games!

Leaping Lemurs Soft Play Party

Go wild on your birthday in our new soft play area! For your party you’ll enjoy an hour and a half in our soft play, followed by half an hour in our party room with your party food boxes. Please note, you will have access to the party room for the full two hours as it is located within the soft play building.

Parties must have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 children. The cost of the leaping lemurs soft play party is:
