Leaping Lemurs Soft Play

This fantastic area has been specially designed for the zoo with a fun animal theme! Kids will love the colourful 4-level play frame, with special baby and toddler zones, cafe, seating and mezzanine area.

The soft play building is located within the zoo grounds, on your right-hand side as you enter the main gates. You are welcome to visit either the zoo or the soft play or both together. The soft play has its own separate entrance and car park.

It is also the location of our new Leaping Lemurs restaurant, the main food outlet in the zoo. Enjoy a range of hot and cold food and drinks at a reasonable price. The restaurant has plenty of seating both indoors and out for during the good weather.
