Dudley Zoo & Castle

Plus Tecton architecture

Dudley Zoo Meerkat

These zoological gardens include limestone caves, an 11th century castle and 1930s buildings by Tecton, an association founded by Berthold Lubetkin who was a pioneer modernist architecture to Britain.

The group was chosen to convert Dudley Castle's grounds into zoological gardens by the third Earl of Dudley. Today it’s as much about the buildings as the zoo, depending on your focus.
