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!






Our new Discovery Room! 


Our new discovery and education room is open at select times throughout public open days.

Come along to chat to one of our team about conservation and meet some of our animals.


Various activities are available for you to take part which vary each day which can include crafts, enrichment making and colouring in so why not come in and find out how you can help the amazing animals we have here at Kirkley as well as help conserve others around the world!
