Hamerton Zoo Park

For some reason, not many people seem to know about Hamerton Zoo however it’s a great day out. Here you will get to see a large variety of birds, lemurs, wallabies, a giant anteater, and some noisy gibbons.

Castle Ashby Gardens

One of my favourite places in Northamptonshire. After a walk around the gardens, you can visit the menagerie to see the chipmunks, giant rabbit, meerkats, tortoise, and a few other farmyard animals.
