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

Make sure you have your camera handy - there will be plenty of selfie moments!

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!

Things to do
