About Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World

’Named the 2nd Best Zoo in the UK by TripAdvisor 2 years running (2023 & 2024), Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World is a great day out regardless of your age.

Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World launched back in 1991 as Hoo Farm Country Park and over the past 30 years has become one of the midlands premier attractions - even winning National Farm Park of the year along the way. In 2004 the farm became a licensed zoo and hasn’t looked back. Now the zoo is home to not just sheep, cows, pigs and horses but other zoo favourites such as Meerkats, Lemurs, Servals, Caracal and even Wolves.

In 2021 Hoo Farm relaunched as Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World whilst welcoming over 30 animatronic dinosaurs throughout several acres of woodland making it one of the largest in the UK. Hoo-Rassic World is not just entertaining but educational also with Prehistoric Park’s Nigel Marven naming the Dinosaurs as the most realistic he’d seen.

Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World is extremely passionate about conservation with a strong message throughout the zoo of conservation through education. This is put across through the fun informative meet and greets that take place but also the renowned animal experiences (advanced booking essential). Whilst being great fun, the new dinosaurs are an important part of this message with it being more important than ever that steps are made to stop us going the way of the…..well dinosaurs!

There is also on site accommodation in the handcrafted log cabin, Badgers Wood. Including self catering facilities and a private hot tub this is ideal for any family to settle down in after a busy day on the zoo.

With daily talks and activities including a climbing wall and mini Land Rover safari there is something to keep everyone entertained. With the launch of ‘Land of the Beasts’ in 2024 bringing the Ice Age to Hoo Zoo it promises to be exciting times ahead.
