Crocodiles of the World is the UK's only crocodile zoo, and home to more than 80 crocodiles representing 13 species of crocodilian, including crocodiles, alligators and caimans. The zoo was founded in 2011 by passionate conservationist and lifelong advocate for crocodile conservation issues, Shaun Foggett. Its mission is to study, celebrate and protect the diversity of crocodiles and their habitats. We have one of the largest and most comprehensive crocodile collections in Europe with more than 80 crocodiles from 13 different species. The zoo is home to species that are rare or near extinct in the wild. We are also home to other amazing species including monitor lizards, iguanas, turtles, tortoises, fish and more. We are open to visitors every Saturday and Sunday between 10.00am–5.00pm. We suggest that you book in advance online, however you can purchase tickets upon arrival, subject to availability. Daily guided tours take place throughout the year during most school holidays. Other zoo events, including school and group visits, private tours, adult and junior keeper for a day experiences and birthday parties take place throughout the week. Crocodiles of the World has been the subject of several television programmes in the past. Channel 5 broadcast a three-part documentary called Croc Man in 2011.
