The park is closed for day entry while we prepare for our Christmas events, starting on the 1st December!
We appreciate dogs are an important part of the family and sometimes a vital part of individuals leaving their home which is why we want them to enjoy a day out at Avon Valley.
Assistance dogs are free to enter the park!
Pet dogs can now buy a doggie day ticket.
The health and safety of children at the park will always take priority which is why we ask all dog owners to agree to the following.
Disabled / Less Able visitors pay the day rate suitable to who they are, but they are entitled to a registered carer to enter with them at a discounted rate. Registered carers must show proof of ID from their local council’s carers centre or a Carer’s Allowance letter.
We can very occasionally take animals in depending on species. Please can you let us know your name, contact number, animal breed, gender (and whether it is castrated or not), age of the animal and reason why you can longer care for it.
Our car park is free to park for general day admissions. There may be a charge for parking at events. Please check your event tickets if this is the case.
You are more than welcome to visit Avon Valley Park if you are pregnant. You are welcome to visit the animals, but we recommend not touching them. It is down to your discretion whether you choose to take a ride on our train ride and take part on our play equipment.
We are a cash free site, accepting card payments at our till systems for food and drinks. The only exception is our quad bikes which require a £2.50 token to be purchased on site. All other rides are included in the ticket price. We do not have a cash machine on site.
All animals naturally carry a range of micro-organisms, some of which cause no illness in the animal but can be transmitted to humans. Diseases passed from animals to humans are known as zoonoses. Some zoonotic diseases may cause ill health; in some cases the diseases may be severe or life threatening. Equally, some are more amenable than others to treatment, and some may leave lasting ill health. A range of zoonotic diseases can be acquired from animal contact at visitor attractions including:
How do people become infected?
People can become infected with micro-organisms through consuming contaminated food or drink, through direct contact with contaminated animals, by contact with an environment contaminated with animal faeces or by being bitten. Very low numbers of micro-organisms can cause human infection.
How safe is a visit to an attraction?
Given an estimated 10 million people visit such attractions each year, we consider the risk of infection to be low. We advise washing your hands after contact with our animals and when leaving the animal contact area. We have handwash stations available at numerous points in the animal contact area.

We have a large capacity at the park so don’t expect tickets to be sold out on the day. We can’t guarantee entry but if you arrive close to 10am you shouldn’t have a problem. Unfortunately as we have to verify the cards on arrival we don’t have the option to buy tickets online in advance.
