In order to look after our animals, our dedicated staff still have to come to work, We still need to pay for food, heat and light, but with no income, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we are struggling financially.

We have a Gofundme page set up where people can help us, to help the animals in our care.

The link is below


Every penny raised will be spent on our animals' welfare.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and in the future. It means so miuch to us, and we are eternally grateful to all our supporters.

Follow us on both Facebook and Twitter. Links can be found at the bottom of the page. It would help us greatly if you could share our Gofundme page to all your social media friends and followers. 

It is with great regret that we are now closed until further notice. We had hoped to continue to open, however following the address from the Prime Minster and Chancellor late this afternoon we have carefully considered all our options and the government requirements, and because of a number of factors feel that we cannot continue to open. We are very sorry but the restrictions that we would have to put on certain parts of the park would be too great. Rest assured we will continue to look after our animals. Although we have enough food for the next week through some amazing donations today, we will repost next Thursday with what we could use if any of you have surplus. All free tickets and season tickets will be extended in proportion to how long we are closed. Keep Well, Jane, Chris, the staff and all the animals at Tropiquaria.

If you wish to help us financially we have a go fund me page set up


Who are we? Where are we?

Tropiquaria Zoo is one of the most unique zoos or wildlife parks in the country. The former "Art Deco" BBC radio transmitter station originally built in 1933, now houses our Tropical Hall, Nocturnal House and Aquarium.  Outside we have 4 acres of animal enclosures, along with our two life size pirate ships, and adventure castle,



Over 40 tanks can be found in the aquarium, housing fish and amphibians from around the world, including the second largest breeding programme in the world of Mexican Livebearing fish known as Goodeids. The Aquarium also houses our collection of spiders and creepy crawlies.


Nocturnal House

Built in 2017, using recycled double glazing windows, donated by a local double glazing firm, this area houses a number of rarely seen animals including one of the worlds smallest primates.   


Childrens Play Areas & Cafe

We have a number of play areas to allow children to use their imagination to the full. From our two lifesize pirate ships and our newly built Adventure Castle, to our indoor play castle. There is something to do in all weather, 


Animal Sanctuary

Unlike many larger Zoos, Tropiquaria occasionally takes in rescue animals............... 


Tropical Hall

Our Tropical Hall is situated in an old BBC Radio Transmitter Station. This Grade II listed buildin still receives waste heat from the current radio transmitter station, that occupies the rear of the building, to help heat our tropical hall. 



Tropiquaria is a world leader in the breeding and conservation of a critically endangered group of small fish known as Goodeids.

These small livebearing fish can only be found in Mexico, and are under severe pressure from both climate change and human action


Animal Encounters & Talks

With up to 4 animal encounter sessions, and up to 8 talks around the park daily, you have plenty of opportunity to get close and personal with our residents.

Hold a lizard or snake, or learn about our rare and endangered animals, there is something for everyone.
