Attraction Information

Summon your inner explorer at Tropical World (Roundhay) - discover tumbling waterfalls, humid rainforests and pools of exotic fish in the not-so-far-away Leeds.    

Surrounded by the stunning Roundhay Park, with over 700 acres of rolling parkland, lakes and woodlands, Tropical World is a perfect nature escape for a family day out. Really want to get the kids excited? Tropical World is home to many bizarre and wonderful animal species -  from the endangered cotton-top monkey at Rainforest Canopy, to the world’s longest snake species at Creature Corner and the armoured Armadillo in the Nocturnal area.

If the chance of spotting live crocodiles, monkeys, meerkats and other unusual creatures doesn’t spark the kids’ interest, we don’t know what will!

  • Meet exciting animal species from around the globe
  • Enjoy a meal with a view of the Canal Gardens at the Tropical Cafe
  • Animal fun for the whole family

Have visited many times and love it 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great mini jungle experience where you can walk amongst exotic creatures. We’ve been many times and it’s always a lovely afternoon out. they’ve got loads of animals in great enclosures - lots of variety from reptiles to marmosets. The nocturnal bit and the lemurs are my favourites.


Slightly Disappointed 3 out of 5 stars

We visited Sunday 11/11/18 it was busy which is understandable as bad weather. Only saw 1 butterfly, cages need a good clean and none of the I pad were working. Needs some TLC
