Lotherton is a beautiful Edwardian country estate, historic hall & museum, and Wildlife World Zoo.

The huge grounds, gardens and parks provide plenty of outdoor space and visitors can watch the majestic deer throughout the seasons.

Wander to Wildlife Corner to explore the natural habitats of our pond-dwelling residents, build natural dens, and spot different species of insects in the warmer months.

Our conservation zoo, Wildlife World, is home to birds and mammals from across the world, including playful Humboldt penguins, Arthur the tapir, and nocturnal animals.
