Playbarn opening times and prices

You are here

We have made the difficult decision to close the Playbarn from the end of the day on Friday March 20th.

As it is impossible to say when we might reopen, anyone with a birthday party booked in will be contacted directly. Once we do re-open we will automatically extend all Playbarn Memberships to reflect the duration of the closure. For the time being, the zoo is still open.

We will keep you posted on when we hope to reopen and we thank you for your support and understanding at this time.

Monday to Friday: 9.30am – 4.00pm (last admission at 3.15pm)

Weekends: 10.00am – 5.00pm (last admission at 4.15pm)
