What To Bring

You will of course have your school agenda for the visit. However, here are a few ideas to help with your planning.


You are welcome to come in for a pre-visit to help plan your visit to the zoo. Contact the Education team to book it in.



On The Day ...

The children can bring in their own lunch, and we’ll make sure they have an area where they can sit to eat lunch to make supervision easier.


We have a café here, so the teachers are able get coffee and other hot drinks as well as a small selection of food


If it is raining, don’t panic: most of our exhibits are under cover.


If it is warm, again, the children won’t be walking around in the hot sun all day. On the subject of temperature, our reptiles need to be kept nice and warm. So, our buildings are quite warm throughout the year. You will not need jackets or coats whilst viewing the crocodiles, but may need one ready to put on if it is cold outside.
