Chinese journos tour site

Two Chinese journalists discovered Dudley Zoological Gardens during a tour of the West Midlands – and fell in love with our vintage chairlift!


Writer Sindy Chan and photographer Troy Nam, of the China Daily newspaper, took in a tour of our 40-acre site with Assistant Curator Richard Brown.

They travelled by chairlift to the 11th century Dudey Castle at the heart of the zoo, before visiting tigers, giraffes, lemurs and lions.


Sindy said they were delighted to be visiting a zoo with such a rich geological and historical background and were very pleased to have the chance to ride on the country’s only vintage chairlift!
