Describing themselves as a “little zoo with lots to do”, we definitely have no issues with agreeing with them. Get close to nature with their fascinating display of exotic wildlife and hands on displays – your children definitely won’t be disappointed.
The highlight of the zoo is definitely the Snow Leopards. They are absolutely stunning! Although, like regular cats they’re often sleeping so you may have to try hard to spot them!
You can also book a number of experience days, including the zoo keeper experience where you get to get up close and personal with some of the animals. This is a firm favourite with the children!
Home to the world’s first ever pencil, the Pencil Museum is a colourful world of arts and crafts. There is plenty to see and do, with a lot of it being aimed at children! There are animation, crafts, cartoons and model making workshops for the whole family – we can’t imagine ever getting bored here!
Children are encouraged to get messy in the art studio, enjoy the fun filled activity trail and experience a personalised pencil being made for them to take home!
There is lots of interesting history exhibitions for the adults to enjoy too – including a fascinating WW2 secret pencil exhibition!
