Dudley Zoological Gardens


Dudley Zoological Gardens is unique . . . a 40-acre site with hundreds of animals set around an 11th century castle incorporating the world's largest single collection of Modernist Tecton buildings and the country's only vintage chairlift! See the UK's largest colony of rare Humboldts play poolside at Penguin Bay and meet and greet free roaming small primates in Lemur Wood. Close Encounters and Keeper For a Day experiences allow visitors to feed Rothschild giraffes, Patagonian sea lions, Asiatic lions, Brazilian tapirs, Tibetan red pandas, Bornean orang utans and a whole range of reptiles and rare birds, then come eye to eye with a Sumatran tiger - one of the rarest animals in the world! Discover the history of Dudley Castle at the heart of the gardens by joining our birds of prey displays in the ancient courtyard and learn about DZG's ghoul friends on daily ghost walks!


The Midlands and the Black Country are synonymous for being very industrious, a lot of the tourist attractions in this area reflect that greatly. But there is always one that breaks the mould and in this case it's the Dudley Zoological Gardens. Your journey starts on the newly refurbished chairlift, even though its not a huge height, it still isn't for the faint hearted! But then again, I am a bit of a Wuss when it comes to heights! I found the journey around the zoo really enjoyable and the wide variety of animals they have there means you get tremendous value for money. I have to say the Castle was a huge surprise as they are ruins of a once very majestic bastion, there was far more to see than I expected which just added to the great day I was having already as I love old castles!
