Welcome to the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis!

With over 100 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates, the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is a unique and exciting blend of wildlife and interactive hands-on displays.

Located just five minutes off junction 35 of the M6, the zoo is home to lush indoor tropical halls, walkthrough enclosures and picturesque outdoor spaces – making the zoo great fun no matter the weather!

Delicious, wholesome food is available every day from the Wild Café, which has a conservatory and outdoor picnic area.

Owned and operated by a registered charity (The Lakeland Trust for Natural Sciences), the zoo prides itself on its commitment to education and conservation of wild species and wild spaces!
