Santa is coming to Dudley!

Dudley Zoo and Castle features in a new children’s Christmas book – which in on sale now in the Safari Gift Shop!

Find out what Father Christmas gets up to on Christmas Eve, when you’re fast asleep in bed in ‘Santa is coming to Dudley’.

With his sleigh packed full of presents and his Santa-nav set to DY, children will be enchanted to read how he dashes through the town from Kates Hill to Wordsley and Holly Hall to Woodside, before flying his reindeer over the top of DZG to deliver all his presents before morning.


The illustrated hardback book is available from the gift shop priced £4.99 and is one of a number of new local books on sale at DZG this year, with visitors also able to pick up books about the Black Country dialect and the region’s ghostly past.

If you’re stuck for present ideas this Christmas then make sure you take a look around the Safari Shop before ending your day out at the zoo.  Packed full of animal toys and cuddlies, stationery, books, sweets and games, as well as DZG’s 2014 calendar, there is sure to be something for everyone’s Christmas stocking!

And don’t forget Santa will be coming to Dudley Zoo from December 3 – 24, where he’ll be meeting families in his Sleeping Beauty themed grotto in the castle.
