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 the Tropical Hall, Nocturnal House and Aquarium.  Outside they have 4 acres of animal enclosures, along with their two life size pirate ships, and adventure castle

The heat for the Tropical Hall comes from the BBC Wales Transmitters, making Tropiquaria unique in the Zoo world.

Daily events include:

Bird Feeding
Gibbon Talk
Animal Encounters
Otter Feeding
Animal Encounters
Meerkat Feeding
Animal Encounters
Lemur Talk

Unlike many larger Zoos; Tropiquaria occasionally takes in rescue animals. These animals may have been seized entering the country illegally, taken from owners on welfare grounds, or simply found after being abandoned. Whilst these animals are usually not of any conservation significance; they still receive the same care.

In the basement of the Tropical Hall in crypt-like surroundings, there is an aquarium with a collection of fish from around the world. Some of the tanks have been converted to house smaller African rodents and reptiles, and invertebrates such as Tarantulas and Giant Millipedes.

Let your kids run wild in the play area! You’ll find two life-sized outdoor pirate ships to play on!
