Animal Encounters

At Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens we are not just a zoo, we believe in educating our visitors about animals and their behaviours.


Therefore, on all zoo opening days we have a range of animal encounters throughout the day so that our visitors can experience first-hand feeding times, handling and talks from our experienced and dedicated zoo team.


See a list of times below.
