Get back to nature.

Get back to nature this May Half Term, from Saturday 27th May to Sunday 4th June 2017 as we celebrate not only the wonderful rare and endangered species that call Howletts home, but also our incredible native wildlife too.

Meet our Education Presenters for lots of free animal talks at various locations around the park, take part in our nature trail and even decorate your own birdhouse to take home.

Our exciting Treetop Challenge and Animal Adventure Challenge will be open daily so you can mimic our agile primates as you swing through the various obstacles and tackle zip lines and climbing frames.

There will be various animal information talks taking place daily, plus other activities available including face painting, so you can look like your favourite animal! Don't forget that you can plan your day and create your own itinerary on our website, do you don't miss a thing and if you book your day tickets online, you'll get 20% off!
