Celebrations Bookings

An alternative option to previous celebrations/parties held at Askham Bryan Wildlife Park

Askham Bryan Wildlife Park will not be offering the traditional Birthday Parties. This is due to a higher focus on Animal Welfare and will instead be providing you with an alternative way to celebrate, whether it’s for a Birthday, Hen Party or Anniversary celebration! We offer the following:

Guests celebrating at the Wildlife Park will be able to qualify for our Group rate with 15 or more participants
Depending on availability, we can provide you with a room in our Science Pod for you and your guests to use, decorate and store things as you wish for the day, for a flat rate of £10
If you’d like to book a tour of the Wildlife Park, you can book an hour long tour for you and your guests for £50, we will provide you with an enthusiastic, informative guide for the tour
For more information on this, please email us at
