Your Winter Trip

We have even more on offer for visiting educational groups exclusively for the winter period!

For the period November 2018 to March 2019, your class will have the opportunity for an exclusive keeper Q & A session, a biodiversity talk, and an animal handling session! We tailor these talks to your needs, and we aim to meet the specific learning objectives and level to best complement your classroom learning. We can discuss a range of topics, from habitats and adaptations, to species distribution, to human impacts on the environment. Please inform our education team prior to your visit if there’s any topic you’d specifically like us to explore!

You can also explore our range of class work booklets (and accompanying teacher’s notes) which you can use on your trip, available here!

To book your winter trip please email or call us on 01506 870 000!
