Animal Club Birkenhead offers interactive educational or social animal encounter experiences.


We tailor visits to the requirements of any primary, secondary or SEN school, party, group or special event.


We pride ourselves on our highly knowledgeable rangers who will lovingly introduce their animals to you. The rangers will let you hold and touch the animals in a safe and careful way.


Each visit is unique and will meet your specific requirements. We can bring along the kinds of animals you want to touch and learn about. You may want cute and cuddly for a party or a wide range of different species for a classroom – you decide!


Our rangers are passionate about animals. They love to teach and amaze visitors about the animals they bring along. They will answer your questions about each animal and provide you with a wealth of information that only they know. All our staff have DBS certificates.


We also hold relevant insurances and can provide you with a risk assessment, if necessary.

Hannah was amazing, great with the kids and kept me up to date on her arrival time because of the ice and snow. A really memorable experience with lots of interesting animals - would recommend.

What our customers say about Animal Club Birkenhead


Lizzy (Mum) – Booked a Birthday party.

This was a really unusual party for my daughter Ellie (aged 7). We chose the animals that Ellie wanted to handle and the ranger was able to introduce each animal in turn. It was really nice that all the children at the party got to hold the animals. Highly recommended!



Mr Cooke (Teacher) – Booked a visit for her Year 4 class.

As our topic was ‘The Amazing Animal Kingdom’ a visit with animals was a really great way to get this topic off to an exciting start. I wanted something that would really get the children excited and engaged. I was really impressed with the wide range of animals that Animal-Club brought. The ranger was highly knowledgeable about all the animals and gave the class lots of interesting background information.



Clair (Beaver Leader) – Booked a visit for her Thursday night Beaver group.

We put on a great selection of activities and events that the Beavers enjoy. I had the idea of booking Animal-Club because I knew the Beavers would love the experience. The whole evening was a huge success and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the boys sitting so quietly! They had a great time and learnt lots of facts about each animal.
