Please call or email us for more details and to make a booking. Contact details are availible on our Contact Us page. Alternatively you can pop into the tearoom and ask for Lisa to have a quick chat.

At the moment we do not have any free-ranging animals. However, as the centre grows we do hope to introduce some free-flying birds to our rainforest area. Keep up to date with our new arrival news and more on our news page or visit us on Facebook!

FAQ's

We have an on-site vegetarian, organic and fresh produce tearoom at the centre for a great selection of homemade cakes, light lunches including homemade soup, toasties, salads and much more and speciality teas. See our Tearoom page for more details or pop in for a visit. Our tearoom is open independantly so you don't have to pay to enter if you are just wanting to drop in for lunch and cake. (Entry fees only apply if you would like to visit our animals)

Are you disabled Access?

Can we hold the animals?

We have a fully disabled access tearoom and toilets. However, due to costs we are currently saving for a lift that will allow full disabled access to our animals. Disabled parking availible and is located close to the front entrance on the concreted area.

One World...Love It

Animal handling sessions are availible daily and are supervised by an animal keeper. The animals that take part may vary due to us having a strict "rest day" policy for our residents to prevent them becoming stressed. Daily handling events are listed on the board in the tearoom by the entry doors on the day of your visit.

Please Note: Not all of our animals can be handled, those that can will be brought out by a keeper.

How dO I book a group or school visit?

Yes! We have a car park at the centre where you can leave your car while you visit us.

We are an environmentally friendly establishment so if at all possible please car share and use Orkney's public transport wherever possible. We are only a short walk from Tingwall Ferry where buses run regularly from Kirkwall and Stromness.
