Members tickets: Please note that the member needs to be the participant, and cannot purchase a member's ticket on behalf of a non-member. All members must bring their ZSL membership card with them on the night.

Minimum group size

We do not have a minimum group size, although the number of adults per group can never exceed the number of children.

Sleepovers are great for cub scouts, brownies, school trips or birthday celebrations.


60 places are available per sleepover.

Our sleepovers are much smaller than the ones in the museums. This will ensure you'll get much more out of the experience and have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and find out about our animals.
