Its reopened and better than ever - 

Lee Valley Animal Adventure Park in Waltham Abbey is a great day out with the kids. From indoor and outdoor play areas to animal activities and more you’ll find it hard to fit it all into one day!

This is an amazing family attraction aimed towards children up to the age of 12. But all ages are, of course, welcome!

Exotic Animals

Travel from the mountains in the Andes to the snowy paths of Lapland in one trail on your visit. Meet our exotic friends down at Critter Corner, Olive Hill and World of Farming and unearth fascinating facts about where they come from.

Birds of Prey

Learn even more fantastic facts with an amazing air show at the farms that will take your breath away. The dedicated falconry team, Coda Falconry, gives visitors all the ins and outs of what it’s like working with such remarkable animals.

The Farmyard

From trotters to snouts the farmyard is home to many of the usual suspects you might expect to find on a farm. However unlike other farms you’ll get the chance to see them up close and even feed them a treat or two, or maybe even three!
