The house itself was OK, nothing special but school children were enjoying a visit. I suppose the main attractions for families are the play area and the wildlife. Lots of weeds in the bird cages and some cages seemed to lack fresh water, a concern...More

Lotherton Hall is an excellent, council-run attraction with a good, varied events programme throughout the year, aimed mainly at children. The cafe is very good value, the aviary and small wildlife section seems to be constantly improving, there are swings and other play equipment for...More

Took our young grandson here for a day out-he thoroughly enjoyed seeing the penguins and talked about them for many a day afterwards-he was less interested in the house and gardens!! So another visit here will take place without a toddler. The House looked rather...More

We’re in our first year of membership and we will definitely be renewing it. The zoo part is great and has been refurbished well. The small kids and big kids parks are super and the cafe is wonderful too- brilliant cakes!

We visited Lotherton Hall during the school half term. We had 6 children ranging in age from 3 to 12 and they thoroughly enjoyed it as there's a lot to do and see. The animal enclosure is fantastic and the white peacock was amazing to...More

To be honest, the best about Lotherton Hall is the little chapel dating back to the 12th century. The Hall itself does not really look very pretty from the outside. Entering for after all £7.50, which we thought was somewhat overpriced for a property of...More

No unfortunately not that I know of. They sometimes have Events through the year and maybe during those there may be one. The bird of prey centre at Burn Hall nr Tollerton is excellent and very interactive.
