Tue, 26 Mar 2019

New arrivals have been announced at the zoo at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

Visitors can now see new guinea pigs which have recently arrived from Avalon Guinea Pig Rescue in Nottingham. In addition, two new pygmy goats have just joined the existing group in the zoo.

The zoo at the venue is open daily from 10am -3.30pm, and offers daily feeding sessions for lemurs, coatis, penguins, goats and alpacas.

Animals include Taiwanese Sika Deer and Cameroon Sheep, Capuchin monkeys playing around their home, and Raccoon Dogs in their enclosures. There are also degus, llamas and more.

Birds in the zoo include some of the most stunning birds in the world, as well as some endangered breeds, including parrots and pheasants such as golden pheasants.

There are also popular morning Animal Encounters with the Humboldt penguins, which must be booked in advance.

Admission to the grounds at Sewerby Hall and Gardens is free until 29 March; admission to the zoo only is £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for children. Family tickets are available at £11. When the house is also open (at weekends only), combined tickets for the house and zoo are available.
