The Zoo

Be introduced to an exciting world of mammals and birds at Sewerby Zoo. Come and meet a wealth of domestic and wild animals from various countries such as pygmy goats from Africa and llamas from South America.

Our newest additions are a pair of Coatis.

Firm favourites are our Humboldt penguins who are fed every day at 3pm and our ring-tailed lemurs who are fed at 2pm.


Sewerby Zoo

Mickey the Micro Pig

There are many species of mammals to see including Shetland Ponies, Capuchin Monkeys, Alpacas and Llamas.

A herd of Sika Deer roam the paddock on the cliff top along with the Shetland Sheep.

Inside the zoo, Pygmy Goats and Cameroon Sheep mingle in their enclosure.

We have numerous Guinea Pigs who have just moved into their new enclosure; Cavy Country.

Degus also live nearby.

Other recent additions include two Raccoon Dogs, two Cameroon sheep (born in the zoo in May 2016) and a pair of Coatis.

Mickey the Micro Pig came to us at the end of October 2015.


Humboldt Penguins

Humboldt Penguins

Amongst our resident birds are many species of pheasant, some of which are endangered in the wild and which breed at Sewerby.

Some of these rank amongst the most stunning birds in the world and include the Indian Blue Peafowl, Golden Pheasant and Temminck's Tragopan.

Our walk-through aviary gives visitors a wonderful close-up view of some of our other birds including the beautiful Mandarin Ducks and the endangered Laysan Teal and Marble Teal.

If you are lucky you may see a group of ducklings with their mother.

We also have two large aviaries containing Cockatiels and Budgerigars.

Smaller aviaries contain finches, parakeets, macaws and conures. Our tortoises can be found in the finch aviary.

Eckie, our Eclectus Parrot can often be heard mimicking certain sounds and even words!

A big favourite at the zoo is the colony of Humboldt Penguins, especially at feeding time (3pm) where they can be seen swimming for fish in their large pool. The Humboldt Penguin is endangered in the wild but the group breed on a regular basis.

Budding zoo keepers and those with an interest in exotic animals are invited to participate in our Animal Encounters.

This activity must be pre-booked and paid for at the same time. The cost is £35 for two people and participants need to be at least 10 years old and accompanied by an adult if under the age of 18. Waterproof clothing and footwear is a must as the experience will still take place if the weather is bad and no refunds will be given.

We ask that participants arrive at the Welcome Centre ten minutes early to discuss the Health and Safety procedures.

The session includes time for questions and answers and involvement with the food preparation then hand-feeding of the penguins.

The experience also includes a certificate, a voucher for 20 per cent discount on refreshments at the Clock Tower Cafe or Stables Gift Shop, a fact sheet, a copy of the zoo newsletter, a key ring and a Sewerby Hall and Gardens pen.
