Animal Education Centre

Animal Education Centre Logo


Hull's local zoo - right on your doorstep!

Located within East Park, the Animal Education Centre is host to a wide range of different domestic, farm and exotic animals. Throughout the year the Animal Education Centre hosts a range of events to engage and educate people of all ages about animals and wider nature topics. Our aim is to educate more people in Hull about wildlife not only from around the world but also in their own backyard.

As you take a visit around the Animal Education Centre you can learn more from our information boards about the different range of animals including information on diet, habitat as well as how endangered some species are. The Animal Education Centre is free of charge and is the perfect way to learn more about nature in an urban environment.
