Glorious Gardens & Trees Trail

It’s not just the animal species we look to protect, it’s their habitats too.

We have a team of horticulturists and botanists whose passion and expertise is reflected in both our extensive collections and animal enclosures.

Take a fresh look and uncover amazing species from common juniper reintroduced to the Great Orme, North Wales to our monkey puzzle trees found in South America.

Where better to start than where it all began at The Oakfield, once the family home to our zoo founder George Mottershead.
