Discovery & Learning

Due to Covid-19 we have temporarily suspended our Educational Workshop Programme and are therefore unable to offer school & group visits to the Zoo & Castle that include a workshop. We hope to be able to re-introduce our workshop programme as soon as it safe to do so.


Please contact for information on self-guided visits.


The workshops detailed in the following pages are from our 2019/20 programme and are for reference only.  UPDATED 02/04/21.
