This week me and the family went to Dudley Zoo. We did go a couple of weeks ago but you get a free return ticket so that is what we did!
We also returned during term time as it was quieter for me to deal with as I am autistic.
If you have not been to Dudley Zoo it is absolutely massive and it does include Dudley Castle. You can pretty much spend the whole day there. Also if you look around you can get offers for 2-4-1. The zoo is not far form Dudley train station so great if you use public transport.
Anyhow there is array with animals to explore at Dudley Zoo so if you haven’t been I definately recommend.
We also got to catch the time slot to pet the farm animals (rabbits, goats, genuine pigs, etc). It was lovely to get close to get to the animals.
This lovely goat is super friendly and adores a tickle under the ear.
I really wanted to take a baby goat home. They are super cute bouncing around and you can’t help smiling when watching.
Plenty of play areas throughout the zoo for the children to have a break and just play. So it gives a variety of stuff to do for Children. I also like the fact they are themed based around animal design.
I like that the vehicle above looks onwards so you see the lions. You feel like you are on a wild adventure and great for imaginary play.
Our favourite animals were the orangutans snow leopards, giraffes, Monkeys, peacocks.
We also got to witness the peacock giving his lady friend a display to try and attract her. Though not entirely sure she was convinced. But was lovely to hear the sounds and display of feathers.
There was also a section for reptiles which was great to the diverse range of creatures on display.
For a parent it was a great place to let your kids to wonder. It was also safe enough to leave pushchairs whilst looking at the animals and not have to worry whether the pushchair.
The boys, AKA checky monkeys.
Can’t go wrong with fish and chips at the café.
Here is the local seal expecting some food!
