Tips & Other Considerations

There may be some variations on the opening hours depending on the time of year and other factors. It is advisable to double check before going to ensure the attraction you wish to see is open and avoid disappointment.

Follow common sense travel tips and remain alert, vigilant and aware of your belongings at all times. Keep valuables such as wallets/purses hidden away from public view. If you have a bag try to use a shoulder bag with a good quality, strong strap, that is put across your shoulder not on your shoulder making it more difficult for anyone to take your bag.

If you are travelling by car to Flamingo Land Resort in North Yorkshire ensure you are well prepared with maps and Sat Nav to aid your journey, particularly if you are not familiar with the local area and roads. For door to door directions use the journey planner to plan your trip via road and public transport. Check the latest traffic information before you travel.
