Attraction Information

Banham Zoo is an award winning attraction with lots of exciting animals and experiences to see and do!

Passionate about animal conservation, the zoo is home to over 2,000 animals from around the world set in 50 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens. Visit the subtropical house ‘Eureka’ to see many species including Santos, the two-toed sloth and take a walk through the lemur and penguin enclosures.

There are impressive big cats prowling around including snow leopards, tigers and cheetahs and one of the most exciting ‘Birds of Prey’ displays in the UK where you can watch bald eagles and barn owls swoop and soar above your head. Children aged 6 and above can enjoy Sky Trek and the whole family can get on-board the safari road train!

A really wild family day out!

Great attraction with lots to see and do 4 out of 5 stars

Lots see and do with a train that goes around the park. Food was a little expensive so probably best to take picnic. Animals Looked happy and well looked after with a sticker trail to collect. Lovely educational shop.


Good Day Out 4 out of 5 stars

We enjoy going to Banham zoo and tend to go every year as we live close by. The zoo is spread out enough that you're not getting in each others way but not so much that you end up missing parts out. We always take our own food as the on time we decided to eat there the choice was limited, the food wasn't great and it was expensive. You are able to get your hand stamped to go in and out of the zoo if you don't want to carry a picnic hamper around with you. The park is a hit with our oldest and he can spend a long time there, I'm sure it's his favourite part. I've been going to this zoo since I was a child. I remember it seeming huge as a child, obviously that changes as you get older but the kids definitely enjoy going.

Great day out! 5 out of 5 stars

We went for a day out at Banham Zoo with the family and had an amazing time! The park is clean and staff very friendly. As well as walking around to see all the animals we loved listening to all the feeding shows and the amazing animals show and birds of prey are great too. Will definitely come back!
