It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… and it certainly is here at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. From our Nativity Plays and real-life reindeer to our unique gift ideas, we’ve got Christmas all wrapped up. If you’re planning a day trip to Noah’s Ark this season, here are some suggestions to make it go with a festive swing.

Wrap up warm and enjoy the great outdoors Noah’s Ark is set over 100 acres of beautiful countryside, and our big outdoor park is the perfect space for a crisp, autumn walk. Wrap up snuggly with your scarf and gloves and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Warm up afterwards with a hot chocolate and some hearty food at our on-site café – serving hot food and drinks all day.

Take advantage of our discount prices We’re feeling generous this season, so we are offering a 20% discount for winter day tickets purchased at the gate. As well as this, you can now buy a 2015 season membership at 2014 prices, up until Christmas Eve. This makes a wonderful gift, but is also a fantastic treat for yourself and means you can visit Noah’s Ark whenever you wish!

Nativity Plays and Reindeer to make you feel all Christmassy Our Nativity Plays are hugely popular, and are performed with live animals, and a real baby! The performances start at 2pm on Saturday 13th December and Saturday 20th December, with seats being allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Come and say hello to our Reindeer – Rocky, Roxie, Ronnie, Regan and Renee. They have furry (not red!) noses, a woolly undercoat and large spreading feet – so a little snow this winter certainly won’t faze them!

The perfect Christmas gift ideas Looking for the perfect Christmas present for the younger members of your family? Head to the Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm gift shop where you will find a range of soft, cuddly toys, Christmas books and other festive gifts. And for anyone who has seen the adorable John Lewis Christmas advert, how could you resist buying them the cuddly penguin toy?
