Wild Lights

Winter nights and festive delights…

On the first two weekends of December we’re lighting up the winter nights with our brand new lantern trail.

With sessions between 5pm and 8pm, wrap up warm and join us for some festive magic after the Zoo closes.

During this glittering 1 kilometre-long trail, expect towering flowers, glowing animal lanterns, twinkling fairy lights and some colourful characters.

Tip toe round our colourful Butterfly House before you enter the final stretch of the trail.

Sip on mulled wine and hot chocolate, munch on mince pies and pick up a stocking filler or two.


  • 1, 2, 8, 9 December 2017


  • Tickets are £10 for both members and non-members
  • Under 3s go free

Please note that Wild Lights is an evening event that takes place while our animals are tucked up in bed.
