Visitor’s Code

Please adhere to the following to ensure a safe and happy day out at Tilgate!


Do not feed the animals

All our animals receive a specially prepared diet and unsuitable foods could make them unwell. Unauthorised feeding could put you and the animals at risk.


Respect the animals

Remember that you are visitors to their home. Please do not cause distress or alarm with inconsiderate behaviour.


Do not climb on, sit on or cross the barriers

Barriers are in place for your safety and the safety of our animals.


No scooters, roller skates, skateboards, ball games

Due to the nature of the zoo environment we ask that you keep these activities and corresponding equipment out of the Nature Centre.


No dogs or other pets

Dogs and other pets are not allowed into the Nature Centre. This could put both our animals and your pets at risk.

Assistance dogs are allowed access, but only with the appropriate certification which must be shown upon entry.
