Feel Festive at Belfast Zoo

Visitors will notice a touch of magic in the air at Belfast Zoo as we get into the festive spirit for the season.

On select dates in December, visitors can post their letters to Lapland and might even catch a glimpse of Santa zipping around in our zoo buggy.

Keepers will treat the animals to special Christmas-themed enrichment such as festive boxes and home-made crackers.

Grab your woolly hats, embrace the outdoors and plan your trip to Belfast Zoo. Children can explore our beautiful 52-acre site by taking part in our Christmas Trail and be in with the chance of winning a huge lion plush toy.

The Treetop café will also have plenty of winter warmers on offer and a free festive treat when you buy non-alcoholic mulled wine. The café is only open at weekends during November and December.

Feel Festive at Belfast Zoo is on certain dates between Saturday 12 December and Monday 21 December from 10am until 4pm. Last admission is at 1.30pm. All tickets must be bought online in advance.
