Animals as your guest – fun and education to your school, party, group or special event from Animal Club Cumbria
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.
What animals can I handle?
Some of our recent reviews of Animal Workshops and Animal Parties
What our customers say about Animal Club Cumbria.
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.

The Predator Experience. Set within the stunning Lake District National Park in Cumbria, you can join a wolf pack wandering through the countryside or step inside a fox enclosure to watch how they interact with the wolves. Learn how to handle and fly an eagle, marvelling at the sight as it soars 500-1000 ft. above your head and take your hawk for a walk, watching it fly from tree to tree in a beautiful display of connection between nature and wildlife.
If you want to get really serious, The Predator Experience gives you the chance to meet snakes and tarantulas and learn all about how they catch their prey as well as about the part they play in biodiversity. If you’re searching for an experience day with a difference in Cumbria, this is where you can fly owls and other birds of prey.
Lake District Wildlife Park is the only wildlife park in North Cumbria. Visit amazing animals against a backdrop of stunning natural landscape!
This 24-acre parkland has over 100 species, including a magical birds of prey display that has been delighting visitors for over twenty years. With an emphasis on conservation and education keepers are keen to share their love and knowledge of their favourite animals such as Brian, the oldest Larr Gibbon in Europe, Beauty the Boa Constrictor, Bill the Bald Eagle and Harley the Mandrill and family.
The outdoor adventure play area is always a big hit with children, who can climb, crawl, slide and swing to their hearts content while you unpack the picnic in the undercover area, ensuring your sandwiches are sheltered from any impromptu rain showers! There’s also an indoor soft play and newly refurbished café serving home cooked food that’s locally sourced.
