Easter Animal Fun – Tue 14th to Thu 16th April 2020


Due to the global health emergency with Coronavirus COVID-19 we have taken the decision to cancel our Easter Animal Fun event.

Anyone who had purchased tickets online will receive a full refund automatically during this week (there is no need to contact us to receive the refund).

The event was expected to be popular and attract large numbers of visitors, and we have therefore decided to cancel in the best interests of all involved given the current global coronavirus

We thank you all for your understanding.

Our next running day

All train services are currently suspended until further notice.

We are regularly monitoring the situation and the latest advice, and will be updating our website at least daily...
