Big Cat Tea

We've all heard of the Tiger Who Came To Tea right? Well, here is your opportunity to actually have afternoon tea with our beautiful big cats at our Hertfordshire zoo! Discover fun for all the family with an informative tour of the Big Cats followed by a delicious afternoon tea overlooking one of our species of magnificent big cats.

You’ll embark on a guided walking tour of our Big Cat Territory, by one of our Big Cat keepers, to see the ferocious felines housed at Paradise including White Lions, Snow Leopards, Tigers and Jaguars. During the tour, the keeper will tell you about the characteristics of each cat and information on the species. You will learn about our ongoing conservation work at the Park, overseas and at the Big Cat Sanctuary in Smarden, Kent.

The tour will take you along the cat walk, a raised platform boasting spectacular panoramic views of the enclosures – So make sure you have your cameras ready as there’ll be plenty of photographic opportunities. It will conclude with a delicious afternoon tea including a tasty selection of sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, tea, coffee and juices. At the end of your experience, you’ll be free to enjoy the rest of your day exploring out Hertfordshire zoo, attractions, facilities and shows.
