Take part in our

Animal Encounter Tours

Our experienced Animal Encounter Keeper Team will provide information for your guests, on the different species, and allow visitors to meet some of the animals. These tours can be added at the end of a meeting as we also offer room hire and catering.


We aim to educate visitors on subjects such as conservation, breeding projects and bio-diversity. There may also be an opportunity for visitors to handle or feed some of the animals.

Escape is the Only Option

Containment Live Escape Games

Containment offers a fresh new twist on team building and team development events. Whilst there is nothing like being locked in an escape room to hone team work and communication we also offer a wide range of team challenges from GPS based trails to catapult building.


Or if you are looking for some serious learning and development then why not combine our escape rooms with facilitated workshops all delivered in house and on-site at Merrist Wood.
