Discovery & Learning

Thank you for considering Dudley Zoo & Castle for your forthcoming school trip.  Set in a 40 acre woodland hillside, our zoo surrounds an 11th century castle and is home to many of the world’s most endangered species.  We offer a daily programme of talks and have a number of walk through animal exhibits including Lemur Wood, Castle Creatures and Lorikeet Lookout.

 

For a general (self – guided) visit our educational admission rates are £8.00 per child (age 3 – 15 years).

Admission rates for students 16 and over are £8.50 per student.

Accompanying adults are £9.00 each.  You will receive one free adult with every 7 paying children.

These rates apply to groups of 10+ children and we require all self-guided visits to be pre-booked by completing and returning a booking form.
