Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park
Spend the day meeting a mix of friendly animals and exotic birds at Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park. Watch meerkats being fed and attend informative keeper animal talks.
When you enter the park you will be instantly greeted by ducks, chickens, geese and turkeys. Head to the formal gardens to find the smaller, more exotic birds. Get up close and personal with bearded dragons, a five foot albino corn snake or Australian Bennett’s wallabies. Be greeted by a barn owl in the secret garden, which is behind the hidden door between the parakeet aviaries.
Walking round an animal park is thirsty work, so enjoy a sit-down refreshment at the café and make sure to check out the gift shop with adorable animal toys and other fun gifts.

Once you step foot in the door you will be instantly greeted by the incredible aroma of rich chocolate, freshly made on the premises itself. Take your time picking from a selection of dreamy chocolates.
