Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, Filby

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Opened in 1979, this progressive zoo fast became a last refuge for many species. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is a strong supporter of The World Zoo Conversation Strategy, and the collection was the first to be signed over in entirety to the Joint Management of Species Programme. Observe species such as monkeys, tigers, leopards, crocodiles, snakes, and red pandas. Study the wildfowl from the Lime Tree Lookout, visit the Crocodile House, and try the Tiger Tree Walk high in the trees surrounding the tigers’ enclosure. Try to catch the feeding of the big cats. The rope bridge is a highlight for children. Take a picnic or eat at the cafe.

  • We've been to Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens twice now and we love the place. All the enclosures are clean and appropriately sized and the animals all look well cared for. The treetop walks are a must especially at the tiger feeding time. Thought we had seen all of it at out first visit, but this year discovered another area that housed another big cat. The café is lovely to sit down with a cuppa & a bite to eat, or you could take a picnic to have in the grounds. Not the biggest place to visit, but I guess by keeping it smaller they can ensure quality for the residents and visitors. Would happily visit again.
  • Went to this place at the spur of the moment, it was a lovely day, sun was shining for a change. We wanted to visit somewhere near, but outside. And we found this place on Google. It's a lovely place, you can get so close to the animals. We watched the staff feeding the tigers from a tree walk, we where so close, it was amazing. It's not a big place, but because you see the animals so close, you tend to linger at each closure longer to watch. There are monkeys, snow leopards, crocodiles, tigers and of course all the other small mammals you see in a zoo. Well worth a visit.
  • Amazing place. Well worth a visit. Nothing like being 6 inches from a tiger. Worth every penny
  • This place is the greatest place we have visited in years. Prices for admission and for food are very reasonable . This attraction is a must for families of all ages as you will be there all day as there is so much to see. We will certainly be going back again in the future.
  • Really nice place - great to be able to get so close to the animals.
