About

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is a conservation charity and the largest zoo in Somerset with over 100 species of animals. The multi award winning Zoo is open 7 days a week and aims to make Noah's Ark a place of joy, wonder, adventure and refreshment that supports the well-being of all visitors, staff and volunteers. Through education and fun, they aim to inspire and motivate this generation and the next to consider sustainable lifestyles and care for our planet. 

Amazing Animals
The home of the big Zoo animals! Visit Noah’s Ark and come face to face with a cheeky mob of meerkats, be awed by African elephants and dazzled by the zebra herd! Experience the majestic beauty and see the skies come alive during the daily birds of prey displays! The Wings of Wonder display showcases the owls, hawks, falcons and eagles in an unforgettably mesmerizing spectacle.

Indoor and Outdoor Adventures
Play and adventure never stops with our 10 play areas across the 100-acre site. Enjoy the huge indoor play barns including under 5’s soft play and a giant rainbow slide. The Zoo also has accessible play equipment including nest swings and a wheelchair accessible roundabout. Fancy an a-maze-ing adventure? Navigate through Britain’s longest hedge maze. The British wildlife themed maze has 3.4km of paths and wooden nest tower at the center. Keep the whole family smiling and active all day, whatever the weather!
