Kids go free At Dudley Zoological Gardens

Plan your very own trip to the animal kingdom and save when you travel by National Express West Midlands or Coventry bus services!

Dudley Zoological Gardens is so much more than just a zoo! 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!
