Providing a living educational experience where children and adults are able to enjoy both domestic and wild animals whilst learning about their natural environment.


Unfortunately, the Animal Gardens has made the difficult decision to close for the remainder of 2020. Whilst Covid-19 has caused us many problems, we now have the potential risk of Avian Flu.

As of 14th December, it will be a legal requirement to house all poultry indoors & to implement strict biosecurity measures. While posing a small risk to humans, Avian Flu can be devastating for birds. The welfare of our animals is of the greatest importance & we feel that closing at this time offers the best protection for them.

We would like to thank our customers for your continuing support & understanding, & we hope to welcome you back in 2021.

The rest of the Norfolk Lavender site remains open as normal.


!!!Closed Until Further Notice!!!
