Animal Activities and More
Our Daily Activities for children have helped make us famous!*
Every day, whatever the weather, there are a number of animal-based activities supervised by the livestock team. These are fun, educational and wherever possible, hands-on.
Go to the Meeting Point and we’ll ring the bell when the activity is about to start. Animal Activities change with the seasons but here is a selection of what could be happening each month.
With so much outdoor adventure and indoor play too, we’ve also included these in the list.
