Get closer to the world's rarest species at DZG...

stare a Sumatran tiger in the eye and learn about conservation, meet free roaming primates in one-acre Lemur Wood and watch the antics of the UK's largest colony of parent-reared Humboldts in Penguin Bay.

There's also the 11th century Dudley Castle at the heart of the zoo where you can step back in time with Castle Creatures, plus 12 quirky Modernist Tecton buildings to discover, along with the country's only vintage chairlift – there's something for all ages at DZG!
