Admission prices

There is yet again no increase in our admission prices this year, but now we are a charity, visitors are being asked at the door if they are U.K tax payers and wish to gift aid their entrance fee. If you do, we are able to reclaim the tax paid providing the person who paid it is a U.K tax payer. Our annual membership remains straightforward, but to comply with gift aid rules, an entrance fee must include a voluntary gift, so, to gift aid, you will be asked for a small amount extra per person. This is entirely voluntary.

We understand that finances are tight for everyone – us too! So we really appreciate anyone adding that extra bit to their entrance fee. Gift aid means we will be able to reclaim the tax on the whole amount paid not just the gift part.This will make a huge difference to us, and our animals, and enable us to do the conservation work we want to do.

Prebooked parties (of 12 or more) are offered one of our hugely popular ‘touch tours’. This can last over an hour, (depending on group size and staff levels) and always allows everyone in the group to get up close to or literally to ‘get to grips’ with a variety of ameniable animals.

For schools, and other groups of children, we offer;

Free entrance for teachers.

Free entry for supervising adults for infants or juniors at 1 adult to five children, extra adults at the child rate. Seniors at one free adult to ten children.

All groups are offered one of our free keeper touch tours, which can be adapted to suit your educational needs. An experienced guide covers topics such as classification, camouflage, rainforests etc. as requested, as well as enabling the children to see closely or even hold a variety of creatures, ensuring a really memorable visit. Many teachers bring their classes year after year.

Worksheets and lesson ideas are available on our education blog:

The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is a great venue for kids’ birthday parties. For pre-booked parties of at least 10 children we will provide hands-on activities and a full kid’s meal in our cafe: either a hot meal or cold buffet. This package costs £8.50 per child; contact the Oasis (see left) for more information. Two free adults with each 10 children,

The Oasis is pleased to be able to offer a rare opportunity to be a Keeper for the Day. You will get to care for, feed and work with exotic animals, and get a taste of what it is like to be a zoo keeper. This would make a fantastic present for any animal enthusiast, and at a fraction of the price of many large zoos.

We offer Keeper for the Day experiences, which last from 10.30 – 1.00pm for any age over 7 at just £59.

We also offer a new Animal interactive, where adults can interact with a varitey of animals including our snow leopards.

Please see our ‘Be a Keeper’ Page for more information for both of these activities.
