When is it available?

Penguin breakfasts are available from 1 February - 30 November and are suitable for a maximum of 14 delegates. They are not available during December or January due to the natural lighting cycles within the penguin exhibit. During these months their enclosure would still be in darkness, which is essential for their health and wellbeing.
