From the formidable tyrannosaurus rex to the gentle brachiosaurus, visitors will be transported to a prehistoric world where they can marvel at the giants that once roamed the earth. 

There’s plenty of dinosaur-themed fun to keep the whole family entertained inside Zoorassic Park, with fossil digging activitieslive dinosaur pop up talks from our presenters, ‘How to train your dinosaur’ daily shows and an education trail for the little ones.

    A great place to go when the weather is dry. The zoo is extremely large; scooters are useful for getting around but not essential. There is a free bus around the zoo. Buggies must be folded on the bus. There is also a steam train (extra charges apply for adults, free for children); buggies must be left in the Buggy Park whilst you are on the train. You can take your car into the zoo for a charge, or park in the zoo car park for a smaller charge. The zoo is buggy-friendly.
