Overview & description

Winter Entertainment

Whilst the theme park area is now closed until 1st April 2017, our amazing animal collection is open daily (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). There is then additional Winter entertainment at weekends and during the main school holidays - as well as the zoo, there are 5 rides for small children and sea lion and bird shows included, for a small additional cost.

Weekdays - Award Winning Animal Collection

Flamingo Land Zoo will be open from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm, allowing you to enjoy over 140 species of reptiles, mammals, fish, amphibians and birds. This extends to Children's Planet, Reptile River, Muddy Duck Farm, Treetop Walkway and our aquarium. You'll also have access to our lemur walkthrough enclosure, providing truly unrestricted views and the opportunity for up-close encounters.

Animal lovers of all ages will be able to enjoy Keeper Talks and a Meet a Creature session each day, all included as part of general admission. Simply wait by the meeting point sign located at each of the relevant enclosures, or make your way to our Education Centre at the time specified on the park guide.

Muddy Duck Café will be providing a mouth-watering range of freshly filled baguettes, sandwiches, sweet and savoury pastries, muffins and cakes, complemented by Costa coffee, speciality teas, rich hot chocolate, mulled wine and chilled juices. For those visitors who enjoy a little retail therapy, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to indulge. Our Zoo Shop will be packed with a great range of Christmas stocking fillers and mementos of your day.

Additional Weekend & School Holiday Entertainment

In addition to the weekday entertainment detailed above, a selection of small rides are also available, including the Muddy Duck Tractors, Jungle Carousel, Helitoys, Mischief Mansion and Wacky Races. We're sure this will provide another great way to keep younger children entertained.

Sea Lion Shows and a Bird Show are available on these additional dates too. There is always a delicious choice of hot and cold food available throughout your visit. So, for brunch, a light-bite, lunch, desserts or Afternoon Tea, The Mansion House & Tea Rooms opens its doors. And then from 11th February, across February half term and subsequent weekends, selected rides within Dino-Stone Park will also be open.

Soar on Pterodactyl, spin on Twistosaurus and pedal on Cyclosaur. You can also search for bones in the Dino Dig sand! Also from 11th February, on these selected dates, the Pirates of Zanzibar outdoor live production show will resume on the Galleon Ship, with acrobatics, fight routines, singing, dancing and an array of special affects!

Animal Experiences - Daily

At Flamingo Land we're always looking for new ways to help you get even more out of your day. With our Animal Encounters, you can enjoy a 20-30 minute session that will provide first-hand experience of giraffes, lemurs, meerkats, penguins or sea lions from just £20. To book, simply visit our website in advance, call 0800 40 888 40 or visit the Zoo Shop upon arrival (subject to availability, minimum age of 8. 8-12's to be accompanied by an adult. Pre-booking required).


The Coach House Country Pub is open daily between 4.30pm and 11pm (food served until 9pm).  All Coach House meals are prepared from fresh, local produce wherever possible, creating a delicious choice of dishes for you to enjoy.

The Coach House welcomes children and families.  It features cosy, dedicated restaurant seating, surrounded by amazing photography from the adjacent animal collection.  The pool table is available every evening (Monday to Thursday for free).

There is a large TV screen that can show Live Sky Sports Events. The Coach House is open independently of Flamingo Land's Winter Zoo in the evenings, so general admission is not required then.

Customers can park at the top of the car park, and access it via a footpath by The Coach House sign. There is an extensive beer garden, plus an outdoor children's play area for when there is sufficient daylight. Traditional Pub Classics food menu is available 7 days a week (though closed on 25th/26th December 2016).
