Zoo Illuminations

Five Sisters Zoo
    • Bigger and Brighter than last year, we would like to invite you to experience the Zoo at night as you’ve never seen it before….

      Thousands of lights illuminating enclosures, trees and plants creating what we believe to be a truly magical Christmas experience. Wander through the Lost Kingdom, spot the wolves and lions, Santa and his reindeer and enjoy the tranquillity of the Japanese Garden. This year there is also a new ice rink and festive market.

      Price: Adults £12   Children 3 – 15 years £7   Infants 1 – 2 years £2 (no concession or family rates available for this event). All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Babies 0 – 11 months are free and don’t need a ticket.
