Exploring the depths of the rainforest might not take as long as you thought, in fact, you don’t even have to leave the UK! At The Living Rainforest you can immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of over 700 species of exotic plants and animals.

Home to free roaming lizards, birds, butterflies, Goeldi monkeys, a Chinese Water Dragon, Harry the armadillo and Cinnamon, the two-toed sloth, you can learn all about the importance of a rain forest’s eco system and how it supports everyday human life.

If that’s not enough there’s a children’s play area, café and free parking. In fact, there’s so much to see and learn that you can come back again and again as your standard admission ticket gives you free access for a whole year!

Discover your inner David Attenborough!
