Visiting Us

Tickets are purchased on arrival.

Whilst Covid restrictions have now been lifted, we do ask that visitors are sensible in the smaller viewing areas to prevent them becoming crowded and to please respect other visitors who wish to continue distancing.

See tables below for our price list. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Admission prices - including Gift Aid or a 10% donation

Did you know you can make every £1 you spend on your ticket worth £1.25 to our lifesaving work with Gift Aid?

Tiggywinkles is a charity and so all money made through our Visitor Centre goes towards saving the lives of the sick, injured and orphaned wild animals in our care. If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a 10% donation we claim an extra 25p for every £1 you spend at no extra cost to you. As our charity receives any government or lotto funding, the ability to claim Gift Aid makes a significant difference.

Not a UK tax payer? You can still help - by donating 10% of your ticket price to our charity work. The prices below apply to you too. Thank you.
