Telephone: 01952 677917
Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is a real children's paradise, a clean and friendly attraction that appeals to all ages and offers close contact with a wide variety of animals from fluffy yellow chicks and baby lambs to foxes, Meerkats, deer and Snakes.
New features include Lemurs and Porcupine along with many new undercover demonstrations to take part in whilst at the farm. The Farmyard Theatre Barn will feature a brand new programme of events including a seasonal Animal Show, meet the reptiles, lamb feeding and much more. The farmyard barn enables all visitors the chance to experience the fun of the farm when the weather is unpredictable.
New areas to be found on the farm trail are "Bizarre British Wildlife" which includes the addition of Otters along with foxes, owls and Coatis. "The African Zone" features some of the old favourites such as the Giant Tortoises and Meerkats but new arrivals are the Lemurs and Porcupine. Other new areas include the "Wallaby Woods" with a walk through the wallaby enclosure and the addition of Llama Walking from early summer where visitors can do exactly that. The Furry Tail forest is also a new area for Hoo Farm and visitors can take part in the New Egg Experience in a brand new undercover building followed by a visit to the 3 little pigs and the Hoollee Highstreet.
The farm is best known for the famous sheep steeplechase: a 'ewenique' and highly entertaining must for anyone visiting the area.
Hoo Farm also has both indoor and outdoor play areas including an under 5’s area with a ball pool and soft play whilst the over 5’s can indulge in the pool table, air hockey and table football.
The farm also has a large picnic area, Tearoom, Snack Shop and Gift Shop.
