Experiences & Events

Please note: All experiences have been suspended until further notice, in line with our social distancing protocol. We are not currently selling vouchers for Meet the Meerkats or Junior Keeper. We are still selling vouchers for Tapir Time. We will update this page with any developments or changes as soon as they arise.

Here at Tilgate Nature Centre we offer three exciting animal experiences that you can take part in:

  • Ever wondered what it was like to have a group of meerkats hop onto your lap? You can meet our friendly mob here at Tilgate and help us give them a spot of lunch! Visit the Meet the Meerkats page to find out more.
  • Do you like the more unusual animals? Head into our Americas zone to spend some quality time with our friendly tapir at Tapir Time.
  • Interested in being a keeper and finding out how we look after both our domestic and exotic animals at the Nature Centre? Check out our Junior Keeper page for more information.
  • Would you like to have animals come to your birthday party? We host parties for children aged 7 and over!
