Attraction Information

Come walk on the wild side at Hanwell Zoo, an award-winning zoo experience for all the family.

Start your day by going to say hello to Mo the common marmoset and Wildbur, Twiglet and Marlon the Kune Kune pigs. Just along from them, you’ll find meerkats bouncing around, mara and a huge range of exotic birds. The zoo specialises in conservation, home to many rare species and providing you with information throughout the day. You’ll feel like a knowledgeable zoo keeper by the time you leave!

Make sure you pay the majestic red-crowned cranes a visit to watch them flock beautifully. There’s even a prickly porcupine, watch out they’re super spikey! After getting to know all of these animals kids are free to run around on the park’s playground facilities or join one of a number of educational programmes on offer.
