Why not waddle along to Birdland Park & Gardens over the May Half Term holidays (29th May – 6th June) and join in on the Penguin Week celebrations.

There’s plenty of penguin-themed events and activities taking place throughout the holidays. 

Birdland Park & Gardens are proud to look after England’s only breeding colony of king penguins which share their beach-themed home with a group of comical Humboldts.

This really is the best time to come and see the king penguins as they are just starting to show off their beach bodies in search of a mate. They’ve shed their winter coats and have been busily feeding up to get the extra energy needed to produce a beautifully sleek summer plumage.

Keepers will be putting visitors’ penguin know-how to the test with a special quiz about everybody’s favourite flightless birds, plus there’s the chance to watch the penguin being fed and learn about their favourite foods and individual personalities.

There will be twice daily feeding displays at 11am and 2.30pm with herring on the menu for the king penguins and sprats for the Humboldts.
