Van Hage Animal Gardens at Great Amwell displays over 300 animals covering 33 different species of mammals, birds and reptiles.
Our Animal Gardens is a FREE licensed zoo run by qualified keepers who are happy to talk to you about the many different animals including pygmy goats, ferrets and giant rabbits (see if you can spot our largest bunny weighing 7kg!).
It is also home to many exotic species, including a small family of meerkats, marmosets raccoons and George our giant African Spurred tortoise (who at 9 years old is still growing).
Animal food is available for 20p between 11am and 4pm (weather permitting), allowing you to feed and get closer to our goats, rabbits, ducks and chickens.
We run daily animal events during school holidays where you can stroke and learn about some of our most friendly residents. Look out for our creepy crawly and reptile events where you can meet our snakes, bearded dragons, bull frog, giant millipedes and tarantulas which are not normally on public display.
