A lovely small zoo nestled right on the coast of Wales, Borth Animalarium has a wide collection of animals with lions, monkeys, leopards and even an albino wallaby! The zoo also offers a free reptile show and the chance to watch the big cats being fed, for an extra cost you can also go on a pony ride or feed the leopards.
King Arthur’s Labyrinth
King Arthur’s Labyrinth is set in an old slate mine high in the Welsh hills, don a helmet and travel underground through a series of tunnels and walkways for a mysterious adventure. There are other activities in the resort: mini puzzle quests, a craft centre and a miner’s route tour. There is also a cafe and shop for all your day out needs.
Thousand Island Expeditions
For the wildlife lovers, you can take a boat safari to the Pembrokeshire islands of Ramsey, Skomer and Grassholm to discover the magical island wilderness. Trek through some of the strongest currents in Britain and pass beneath the highest sea cliffs in Wales. You may even be able to watch porpoise feeding in the bay by Ramsey! The boats leave from St Justinian’s in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, so there is also lots of coastal walks and outdoor activities on offer when you’re back from your wild adventure.
Aberystwyth Camera Obscura
Take the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway up to the summit of Constitution Hill where the Camera Obscura will give you a birds-eye view of the surrounding area. The huge 14-inch lens takes a bird’s eye view of more than 1000 square miles of land and seascape in a 360-degree sweep around Aberystwyth, a view reflected onto the circular screen in the darkened viewing gallery below.
