This means that our Tea with the Tigers event will be postponed until further notice. Please continue to check back on this page for the latest updates when we know more.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.


Come along after hours for the opportunity to learn all about our majestic Sumatran tigers and Asiatic lions.
Watch them at feeding time, meet their keepers and enjoy a presentation. All of this plus tea and a delicious slice of cake!
