Animal Walk

The Animal Walk lets visitors walk in between the enclosures for a close encounter with its furry and feathered residents.

Home to goats, sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens and alpacas, the Animal Walk guides visitors on a walk through the centre for a close-up view of the animals.

The Animal Walk further brings to life founder Frederick Horniman’s vision of an outside space reflecting the Museum’s collections.

Linking to the Museum’s Natural History collections, it looks at the connection between domesticated animals and their wild relations, and why people live alongside domesticated animals.

Access to the Animal Walk

The path through the Animal Walk is on an incline, so may not be suitable for all wheelchair users.

Have a look at the video below to see how to find the Animal Walk, and what it is like inside.

My mum made pals with an alpaca on Sunday at the Horniman Museum's gardens. Such a charmer!
