Why not come and visit our tropical rainforest glasshouses? With over 650 plants and animals including both rare and endangered species, there is something for all the family.

Don’t miss the two toed sloth, blue poison dart frogs, snakes, and our newest residents – a beautiful channel billed toucan, and Rio the green iguana.

Our free daily guided tours give a fascinating insight into the unique plants and animals of the rainforest, including why Rio the green iguana is actually red!
