We all love the sunshine, but it is not something we can rely on in the UK all year round! Luckily for our visitors, the HCC is great whatever the weather is doing!

 With a number of sheltered walk ways, indoor exhibits and animal houses - some which even transport you to the world's tropics -, the rain doesn't stop us!

As we are a natural site, and many of our paths are natural material, please wear suitable footwear for potentially muddy conditions!

The majority of our outdoor exhibits also feature sheltered spaces where you can see our animals out of the rain! This includes our lorikeet feeding sessions, and several of our brand new exhibits nearing completion, such as our rusty spotted cat viewing deck and civet shack!
