Tropiquaria is not just a small zoo, but a lot more!

It is based on a 1930s art-deco BBC transmitter hall, which in part is still functioning. Indeed the tropical hall takes much of its heating from the BBC Wales transmitters.

As well as animals in the main hall, there are many more animals outside, several play areas, both inside and outside, a radio museum and the Shadowstring puppet theatre.

For admission prices and opening times, please look at our website and to stay up to date with all the animal happenings, join Tropiquaria friends on Facebook.
