Dinosaurs return to the UK – taking over parks in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow this year

Britain’s outdoor spaces are set to become Jurassic Parks, as DINOSAURS roam free once more.

Jurassic Encounter – an unmissable, family-friendly event – makes its UK debut, touring London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leeds from 24 July until 7 November.

Each of the cities will play host to prehistoric playgrounds, featuring more than 50 animatronic dinosaur scenes, including a fearsome, 18m tall T-Rex that breathes and sways its tail as it hunts for prey; an Iguanodon’s furious battle against a Deinonychus; Pterosaurs that screech as they soar through the trees; a 15m tall Brachiosaurus, guarding her eggs and a 16m long Diplodocus, who cries out to passers-by.

And for those who want to relax after walking the perilous path through the dinosaurs’ domain, a refreshment area will offer street food.

Naz Kabir, spokesperson for Jurassic Encounter, says: “Dinosaurs have always captured the imagination of children and adults alike, and Jurassic Encounter will be a fantastic, interactive way to learn more about these fascinating creatures. We can’t wait to welcome our guests – and our Prehistoric visitors – to parks up and down the UK this year.”

The tour begins at Grovelands Park in London at the start of the summer holidays (every day from 24 July – 10 Aug) before moving to Birmingham Botanical Gardens (21 Aug – 5 Sep), Glasgow Cuningar Loop (2-17 Oct) and Leeds Roundhay Park (23 Oct – 7 Nov).

Ticket prices start at £11.50 and advanced booking is advised, although walk-ups will be admitted, subject to availability.

A special, early-bird discount is available by entering the code EARLYBIRD20 at the checkout before the end of May.
