The site has been designed to be suitable for all access needs including wheelchair users. Paths are all smooth with little to no gradients. Even our wash stations are wheelchair friendly.
Offering everything from basic tea room fare such as hot drinks and homemade cakes, to sandwiches and light lunches
COMING SOON: For those visiting who wish to view animals close up and have a photograph taken as a memento of the day, we have a purpose built photographic studio on site.
Our zoo in pictures – a display of photos of our animals taken by ourselves and visitors. If you would like to submit a photo for display, please feel free to email us any pictures you would like us to see.
Messingham Zoo is a family run business. The primary aim is to offer something different to larger zoos and wildlife parks by focussing on close up encounters with smaller, friendlier animals. Education forms a big part of what we want to deliver, teaching about animal care and welfare. The zoo is still being established but the vast majority of animals are now on display. New animal attractions are being added all the time as animals arrive.
