Looking for a fab family-friendly day out? Then look no further than Crocodiles of the World.
The UK’s only crocodile zoo is certainly an exciting place to visit. This unique conservation centre welcomes over 100 crocodiles (housing 19 of the 24 different species worldwide).
This includes crocodiles, alligators and caimans, alongside other fascinating reptiles, mammals and birds.
Feed crocodiles in the UK
As you enter the Crocodile House, you’ll enjoy unique underwater and aerial viewing via their decked walkway above. Be sure to double check when feeding times are to see the crocs in action!
If you choose, you can experience a variety of hands-on experiences and encounters. Under the guidance of a zoo keeper, you can even feed the 35 Nile crocodiles within the Crocodile House!
As you make your way through the zoo, you’ll also get to see Galapagos tortoises, meerkats and the cutest otters, among other animals.

In addition to cute critters, there’s a play area, cafe and gift shop to enjoy on-site.
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the on-site Croc Cafe. If you’re going, I’d probably grab some chips and avoid the lacklustre burgers.
On the other hand, the gift shop is lovely, with a host of crocodile-themed items. Be sure to grab a crocodile plush on your way out to commemorate the day!
Dodgy veggie burger aside, Crocodiles of the World was a fantastic experience that I’d recommend for people of all ages.
You can enjoy this accessible experience within two to three hours and it makes a lovely and stress-free family day out with a buggy in tow.
Tickets start from £8.75 (children aged 2 and under are free) and they offer discounted family tickets. You can book tickets on the Crocodiles of the World website.
