From the Welly Splash Pool to the Beehive Maze, tractor rides and plenty more fun play areas, you can ensure that the family has a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Enjoy 12 exciting adventure play areas, an indoor Animal Village and covered Animal Show Pens.  There are over 25,000 square feet of heated areas and hotspots around the 100 acre park to make your visit enjoyable whatever the weather. What started as a Farm Centre with farm animals, rabbits and guinea pigs and a small number of exotics like wallabies, has grown to become the largest zoo in the South-West welcoming over 200,000 visitors a year. They now have a large range of exotic and endangered species, including African Elephants, Giraffes, Tigers and Spectacled Bears.

At Noah’s Ark they are passionate about caring for their animals and invite their visitors to have fun-filled, educational and exciting animal experiences through hands-on animal encounters, exhibits and keeper talks.
