It is part of the Zoological Society of East Anglia, a registered charity that also owns Africa Alive! near Lowestoft, Suffolk. Today, it has acquired a much larger collection of animals, but it still retains one of the best collections of smaller monkeys in Europe.

Bressingham Steam & Gardens
Bressingham Steam & Gardens7.17km from Banham Zoo

Bressingham Gardens and Steam Experience is a unique combination arising out of the passions of founder Alan Bloom, whose profession of nurseryman and gardener and hobby of a steam powered collection of trains and traction engines led to the leisure destination of Bressingham Gardens and Steam Museum. The site has several narrow gauge rail lines and a number of types of steam engines and vehicles in its collection and is also the home of the national Dad's Army exhibition

Euston Hall
Euston Hall18.12km from Banham Zoo

Euston Hall is a red-brick Georgian country house, the home of the Duke of Grafton. The house that we see today is only a wing of a much larger house which was destroyed in a devastating fire in 1902. Apart from the Hall, visitors can enjoy the landscaped park and formal gardens, as well as the Capability Brown-designed waterways, the charming Church of St Genevieve, the watermill and an interesting collection of agricultural bygones in our small exhibition room.

Dads Army Museum Thetford
Dads Army Museum Thetford19km from Banham Zoo

The Dad's Army Museum is a museum located in Cage Lane in Thetford in Norfolk, England, dedicated to the popular BBC comedy series Dad's Army. Many of the outdoor locations were filmed in the local area. The museum is housed in the old fire station at the rear of Thetford Guildhall, which itself stood in for Walmington-on-Sea Town Hall in several of the episodes.

Ancient House Museum
Ancient House Museum19.19km from Banham Zoo

Ancient House is a fascinating museum of Thetford life, housed in an attractive, half-timbered, Tudor merchant's house. The museum tells the fascinating history of Thetford and the Brecks region, through displays of industrial heritage, archaeology, photos, costumes, arms and armour, social history, fine art, and natural history.

Mid-Suffolk Light Railway
Mid-Suffolk Light Railway22.64km from Banham Zoo

The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway is a heritage railway in Suffolk, which in its heyday was a branch line which ran for 19 miles from Haughley to Laxfield, in Suffolk. It has a station with restored Mid-Suffolk buildings, a steam train consisting solely of appropriate Victorian coaches (not a Mark 1 in sight!), and a line passing through countryside, which has changed little during the succeeding decades.

Grime's Graves - Prehistoric Flint Mine

Grime’s Graves is the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain. This grassy lunar landscape of 400 pits was first named Grim’s Graves by the Anglo-Saxons. Flint was much in demand for making polished stone axes in the Neolithic period. A small exhibition area illustrates the history of this fascinating site. Visitors can descend nine meters by ladder into one excavated shaft to see the jet-black flint.
