At Enginuity you can meet a number of mini-beasts at the Exotic Zoo where there will be daily shows with snakes, spiders and other exotic creatures. At Blists Hill Victorian Town the animal theme continues as visitors are able to see some farmyard favourites including pigs, sheep and baby chicks. The highlight will be the heavy horses on display with harnessing and tail plaiting demonstrations.
