Advance booking of general admission

Due to the ongoing concerns around COVID-19, admission to the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is currently by pre-booked, timed arrival tickets only.

We are taking this approach to keep visitor numbers at safe levels so that everybody is able to enjoy their visit whilst maintaining a healthy social distance.

At the present time only 25 tickets are available in each half hour 'arrival window' - children under 3 years old do not need a ticket.

First admission is at 10am daily. The final entry slot is 13:30 - 14:00 every day except Friday, when the last entry slot is 16:30 - 17:00. The Oasis will close 3 hours after the last entry time so you will have at least 3 hours for your visit. The zoo closes at 5pm every day except Friday, when we will stay open to 8pm.

Hot and cold food are available.

Bookings can be made up to 14 days in advance, using the calendar below.
