There’s even a fun new dedicated kids’ area…

The Green Planet is the fun, educational attraction that anyone of any age is sure to enjoy. It houses a huge indoor tropical bio-dome, 3,000 tropical plants and animals, and has just opened a cool new rainforest-themed cafe.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Green Planet Cafe is open now, serving food and drinks from 10am to 7pm daily. The refurbished terrace has been given a jungle makeover as well as the addition of a brand-new dedicated kids’ play area, complete with ball pit.

Your little ones will be encouraged to burn off all extra energy gained from the dedicated kids menu, with the soft play small slides and climbing area. Continuing the theme, a team of biologists experts are on-hand even while you’re munching your lunch, with animal encounters around every corner.
