Parks, leisure and the arts Animal centre

The Animal Centre, set in the old stables, is a great free place to take the kids.

You can meet many common farmyard animals, such as chickens, goats, geese, pigs, turkeys, ducks, rabbits as well as more exotic species such as alpacas and Sulcata tortoise.

You may be lucky enough to spot a peacock up a tree or proudly strutting around the Stables Courtyard.  Out in the park we have Highland cattle with their long horns (you'll spot them with their eye-catching long rusty red coats) and Shorthorned cattle in one of the fields along with horses and donkeys

The animal centre has knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to answer all your questions.

Petting is not permitted and we ask that you do not feed the animals.

The Animal Centre is open from 10am until 4pm.
