Lemur Walkthrough OPEN

Now that the weather is looking a bit brighter, we have let the lemurs loose into Lemur Woods and our Lemur Walkthrough is OPEN!

Lemur Woods is the ONLY Lemur Walkthrough exhibit in the Northeast of England and it also includes a treetop viewing platform so you can get at eye-level with the lemurs while they bounce through the trees!

The Lemur Woods exhibit is open to the public daily from 11am - 2pm, weather permitting! Lemurs are not so keen on the British rain, so they stay cuddled up in their warm house on those really wet days. However, you are still able to view the lemurs in their indoor accommodation.

One of our team will be based in the Lemur Walkthrough to answer any questions that you may have as well as pointing out whos' who in our Lemur Troop.


After great success and popularity of our other animal encounters, we have also decided to add another encounter to the list and allow visitors the chance to get up close and personal with our cheeky troop of Lemurs.

The lemur group has also increased in size recently as we welcomed more lemurs from two other UK collections.

You can find out more info on our Lemur Encounters page.
