Happy 2018 everyone.

Just in case we get another cold snap be prepared and stock up on rock salt now.  We also have snow shovels and sledges in stock too.

Don’t forget to feed the birds during any cold weather.  You will find a large selection of bird care at Lakeside and there are some early bird bargains to be had so don’t miss out as when it’s gone it’s gone!

Exotic Zoo will re-open to the public on Saturday 3rd February.  Daily opening is 11 – 4 with last entry at 3.45pm.  If you need any other information about the Zoo please contact them direct.       Website:    Tel: 01952 371570     Email:

Spring is on the way so pop down to Lakeside for all your gardening needs.  Plants and pots on sale in store now but only while stocks last. 

Don’t forget Richard the knife sharpener is at Lakeside on the 1st Sunday in every month so bring all your blades down and for a small charge per blade Richard will get them as good as new!
Team Lakeside look forward to seeing you all in 2018.

Welcome to the Lakeside Plant and Garden Centre website. We are a family owned and independent business and pride ourselves in providing a personal service to all our customers.

We stock a wide range of high quality plants, garden and garden care products in a relaxing and friendly environment and our Animal Park offered a further unique attraction for visitors to meet animals in a natural environment. Steve Evans

The Animal Park became so popular with families and schools who visited that we were pleased when Scott Adams of Exotic Zoo decided to relocate to the Lakeside site, manage the former Animal Park as a zoo, and further enhance the range of unusual, rare and exotic animals, offering a unique visitor experience.

Families can also relax after visiting our centre in the comfort of our award-winning 5 * Food Standards Agency Hygiene Accredited Lakeside Court café.

We also host a range of events throughout the year including dog shows, food and craft fairs and several charity events.

For more information please follow the website links. We look forward to welcoming you to our centre.
