Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, Filby

4.4
#2 of 48 in Wildlife in Norfolk
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Filby trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • The boyfriend took me to Thrigby Hall as I had never visited there before. All I asked was, "Are there Red Pandas there?" Answer = Yes!! It was around £15 pp to get into the attraction but it was defi...  more »
  • This is not a huge place so you only need about three hours. It was lovely to be able to get close to the tigers on the walkway. As it was so cold lots of the animals were inside but plenty of viewing...  more »

  • Had a great time here. Amazing to see so many rare animals in one place. They have a successful breeding programme too, which is great considering they rarity of a lot of the animals they have. Even got to watch the leopards and tigers have their food (which my 4 year old enjoyed very much)
  • Went for the first time last week and I cannot believe I haven't been before! Loved how most the paths are high up and can see the animals so clearly. I didn't fancy standing right close to the tiger tho! It's not the biggest zoo but it's plenty enough. I found it better then banham zoo. Food is home cooked. having a diabetic son it would be good to see more sugar free drinks available to buy. Will be coming back real soon. Great day out.
  • Was very disappointed. I don't feel it was value for money. It seemed very dingy and the enclosures weren't good from a photography point of view. I had walked around it in less than an hour. I won't be returning. 😞
  • This is not like a regular zoo. In places it feels like the animals are at home while the visitors are in the cages. The best part is visiting the tigers on their high deck. Wrk worth a visit.
  • Great day out. Wheelchair friendly apart from one or two bridges that are not wide enough or too steep but we managed a few more than they warn you. (They had 2 wheelchair available to borrow). Got closer at feeding time than some other zoo's we've visited too. If the kids get bored of animals there are mazes and play/climbing area.
