Are you brave enough?

You will have the chance to handle from a range of species here at Knockhatch. Every day is different! Are you brave enough to handle a snake, hissing cockroach, lizard, spider? Handling them will be in a controlled way with one of our handlers. This is to ensure your safety and that of our exhibits.
Have you already been to our Animal Encounters Barn and handled something? What did you learn? What was your favourite? Please share your experience with us over on our Facebook Page, we would love to see your photos!

All animals can bite and can carry diseases so you must wash your hands thoroughly after handling anything in the animals encounter barn, particularly before eating. You can wash your hands at the various hand washes situated around the farm, there's one in the barn. Expectant mothers should take care around the animals due to the fact they may carry zoonoses - More info can be found on our Health and Safety page

REVIEW *****
Coming from Derbyshire to visit our grandsons in Brighton we always try and have a day at this wonderful attraction. Having grandchildren from 18 years down to 5 years we have visited many attractions in various parts of the country this being the best value day out. Knockhatch continue to add attractions the latest being the indoor jungle/dinosaur barn full of high slides and rooftop rope walkways, we spent many hours in here today
