Explore their newest and biggest ever exhibit – Tropical House: Energy for Life – now open! The £8m exhibit spans two levels offering fantastic vantage points across a lush, tropical canopy and the opportunity to experience the captivating life of the forest floor. This marks the second phase of a £17m investment programme for the zoo over the next 8-10 years, creating improved habitats for animals and more immersive experiences for guests. 

PLUS, see Mr Bloom from CBeebies with his one man show every August weekend and bank holiday! There’ll be a bundle of veggie stories, gardening games, and catchy Nursery songs for toddlers and parents alike. Take part in a fun trail around the zoo, throughout August, and meet crazy botanist 'Dr Chris Anthemum' for his fun-filled weekday show.
