For ways to help and for up to date news from the zoo, check our social media pages regularly.

During the COVID pandemic we lost around 9 months of income and now with the cost of living crisis, our fuel bills have quadrupled, so we still need your help.

Every penny raised goes straight towards the welfare of all our animals.


Who are we? Where are we?

Tropiquaria Zoo is one of the most unique zoos or wildlife parks in the country. The former "Art Deco" BBC radio transmitter station originally built in 1933, now houses our Reptile Hall, Nocturnal House and Aquarium.  Outside we have 4 acres of animal enclosures, along with our two life size pirate ships, and adventure castle,



Over 40 tanks can be found in the aquarium, housing fish and amphibians from around the world, including the largest breeding programme in the world of Mexican Livebearing fish known as Goodeids. 


Nocturnal House

Built in 2017, using recycled double glazing windows, donated by a local double glazing firm, this area houses a number of rarely seen animals.


Childrens Play Areas & Cafe

We have a number of play areas to allow children to use their imagination to the full. From our two lifesize pirate ships and our newly built Adventure Castle, to our indoor play castle. There is something to do in all weather, 


Animal Sanctuary

Unlike many larger Zoos, Tropiquaria occasionally takes in rescue animals............... 


Reptile Hall

Our Reptilel Hall is situated in an old BBC Radio Transmitter Station.



Tropiquaria is a world leader in the breeding and conservation of a critically endangered group of small fish known as Goodeids.

These small livebearing fish can only be found in Mexico, and are under severe pressure from both climate change and human action.


Animal Talks

With up to 9 talks around the park daily, you have plenty of opportunity to get close to, and  learn all about, our animals and even chat to our keepers.
