Hundreds of exotic and endangered animals inhabit an ancient wooded hillside, with a rich geological history, around the ruins of the 11th century Dudley Castle and share a site with the world’s largest single collection of Modernist Tecton structures – and the country’s only vintage chairlift!

I've lived in stourbridge my whole life. Never thought much of Dudley zoo thinking it's not worth the visit as it's local won't find much there. But I was amazed good variety of animals. Friendly staff. Definitely recommend.
