Dudley Castle, Dudley

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Dudley Castle offers an extraordinary combination of an important historical site and a collection of wildlife exhibits. The grounds of the ruined 11th-century castle contain the zoo, and your ticket grants you admission to both. At the former, read interpretive displays to learn the castle's history and watch a medieval demonstration by a reenactment group. In the latter, view hundreds of animals such as lions, tigers, bears, snow leopards, sea lions, lemurs, tropical birds, amphibians, and reptiles. Opt for a close-encounter experience to touch or feed one of the zoo's residents, or join an arachnophobia workshop to overcome your fear of spiders. Buy your tickets online to avoid waiting in line at the entrance. Make Dudley Castle a part of your Dudley vacation plans using our Dudley itinerary planner.
