Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens was originally set up as an educational training facility for Northumberland College’s animal students and opened as a tourist attraction on the weekends.
The zoo now has over 130 species of animal, including reptiles, ring tailed lemurs, wallabies and alpacas to name a few and smaller domestic animals in the petting barn where feeding and handling sessions are run throughout the day.
There are river and forest trails around the grounds as well as an activity centre for children and adults with treetop ropes, rickety bride crossings, a leap of faith and a zip wire that cuts through the air at over 20 miles per hour!
