There is Tropical World, a popular family attraction, where little adventurers can explore tropical habitats and encounter exotic animals – make sure to say hi to the meerkats from us!
Across the city’s gorgeous historic estates you will find plenty to get the whole family excited. Visit Lotherton Wildlife World, housed in the stunning gardens of Lotherton Hall, and meet our playful penguins.

Speaking of adventure, a trip to the enchanted forest at the majestic Stockeld Park has a fun day out written all over it, as does taking in a wildlife-filled trail on the island of Thwaite Mill – make sure to pack a picnic.
