The weather won’t ruin your visit to Howletts Wild Animal Park or Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve: We offer a rainy day guarantee at both Parks for all day visitors who have booked in advance!
If you visit before 31st December 2023 and it rains continuously for 2 or more hours between 10.30am – 5pm, our Rainy Day Guarantee means that you can return to the Park free of charge within 30 days of your original booking.
