From Our Editors

Situated four miles from an airport and eight miles from the centre of Newcastle, Kirkley Hall welcomes business and leisure travellers alike. Being one of Northumberland College's campuses, with over 50 years of experience in agricultural and land-based training, the 17th-century interiors of this Grade II-listed building can accommodate to an array of functions, including weddings and conferences. Guests can also wander through a walled garden, or visit the Zoological Gardens, which feature a vast collection of animals. The Orangery Tea Room serves a range of snacks and light lunches such as soups, jacket potatoes, panini and afternoon tea, while play and picnic areas are also available.

Really good zoo, small but still a good variety of animals to see. loved the Bush Dogs which are like small baby bears - very cute. They have a small park for the kids to play after their lunch and also an obstacle course at the entrance to the zoo. You can pay extra for the climbing wall and zip wire. we will be back to try these. great day out especially if the sun is shinining

Great day out, lots to do & see. Lovely interactions with animals from peacocks walking around to petting opportunities. Nice play areas for kids, lots of new developments and animals planned. We will definitely go back.

Lovely friendly well maintained zoo. Plenty for kids to do and participate in. We have been here twice now, next time we are going to try the climbing wall and high ropes.

Great place to take young kids. Family friendly, nice playground for young children. Picnic area gets a little busy and it can be hard to get a seat. Any easy place to spend 2-3 hours and keep the kids entertained.

The zoo is clean and tidy. Not too far to walk round with little Ines and the animals enclosures have intresting things for them to interact with. There were animal information sessions and feeding sessions through out the day. Cafe nice with friendly staff and a great play area opposite it, but you do have to walk back up through the arpark to find this. You can also walk through to the woods at the back and look for red squirrels. If you have older children (6+ and over 1.2neters) there's also now an adventure centre on site. Joint tickets available.
