Animal Encounters

Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens we are not just a zoo, we believe in educating our visitors about animals and their behaviours.

Therefore, on all zoo opening days we have a range of animal encounters throughout the day so that our visitors can experience first-hand feeding times, handling and talks from our experienced and dedicated zoo team.

See a list of times below.



Lorikeet Lookout 


For just £1, you can hand feed these beautiful birds inside their enclosure. 

Limited tickets available each day - make sure you purchase yours on arrival!


PLEASE NOTE: on special days, there may be slightly different or themed encounters. Please see the Upcoming Events.
