Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park is an outdoor attraction with plenty of space to social distance - research shows that you are much less likely to get coronavirus whilst outside. Like all businesses in the current situation, we are working very hard to keep everyone safe, and have implemented a number of additional measures based on official guidance. However, it is your responsibility to follow these and maintain social distancing. Please do not visit if you are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
If, having read these measures, you still feel uncomfortable about visiting, we hope you will return when things get back to ‘normal’.
By entering the park you agree to follow all signage and instructions. Visitors found to be breaching these may be asked to leave without a refund.
We ask that you are polite and patient with both staff and other visitors. If you have any problems or concerns please inform a member of staff
To ensure the safety of our staff, visitors and animals we have caried out a comprehensive Risk Assessment and implemented the following measures:
Visitor numbers closely monitored and will be limited if necessary
Screens at service areas
Additional hand sanitising stations and sinks
Additional cleaning in toilets and high contact areas
Queueing systems for the café, gift shop, playpark and entrance
Limited snack menu from the cafe with reduced indoor seating
Additional picnic tables spaced around the park
Contactless payments up to £45 (cash and chip & pin accepted)
No scheduled keeper talks/animal feeding to discourage crowds
Playpark open with reduced capacity and additional measures
Pre-booking is not currently required.
Test and Trace: If eating inside the cafe we are asking each adult within your group to leave a contact name and telephone number to help with the NHS Test and Trace system. This information will be stored securely for 21 days and then deleted, unless it is requested by the NHS. It will not be used for any other purposes. Alternatively each adult can scan our QR code using the official NHS COVID-19 app. This is only compulsory to do when eating inside, but not when taking away to eat around the park.
Rule of 6: We can only accept groups of up to 6 people per table inside the cafe. Unfortunately, we cannot accomodate larger groups from 2 households at one table due to layout (though they can sit at seperate tables near to each other) however, groups must remain seated at their table whilst eating.
Face masks must be worn inside the gift shop and whilst ordering in the café, in line with government rules. They are not compulsory elsewhere in the park. Please dispose of masks responsibly to protect our staff, animals and the environment.
Although every effort has been made to allow easy social distancing, some narrow areas will require you to step back and wait to allow others to exit the area before you can enter.
Measures will be reviewed and changed in line with official guidance
