Waddle with Penguins!

Get closer than ever before...

Get up close and personal to over 20 incredible Humboldt Penguins in their walk-through home, Penguin Island!

All of our penguins are named after cartoon characters - see if you can spot Dangermouse, Hazel, Barnacles and the rest of the waddle, as they splash out in their babbling waterfall and dive into the pool!

See how you measure up against the penguins around the world on the height chart! Are you short like a rock-hopper or larger than an emperor?

Join in the fun in our new for 2019, interactive experience - Turtle Rescue.

Children of all ages are encouraged to get hands-on rescuing their own interactive turtle. You'll need to gender and name your turtle, before making sure its free from injuries, fed, hydrated and well looked after. Once you've given your Turtle the clean bill of health, you'll be able to release him back in to the Ocean.

Who ever said education couldn't be fun?
