The children's zoo opens daily at 10.30am and closes at 5pm in the summer and 4pm in the winter. Entry is free of charge.Feeding times are 2pm in the summer and 1pm in the winter. The Heritage Café is located in the heritage yard and serves a wide range of food and drinks, including a children’s menu.
