Fourteen life-sized ‘roaring’ animatronic dinosaurs have been displayed at Hamerton Zoological Park near Sawtry, taking visitors on a journey through time.

From ferocious T-Rex to mighty Triceratops, this immersive prehistoric adventure can be accessed by riding the park’s road train.

The recently extended road train, the KT Express, began its new route this month and is already offering young and old a “never before seen” perspective of some of the park’s old favorites and new dinosaur residents.

Hamerton Zoo Park has been in continuous development since it opened over 30 years ago.

Meanwhile, after a two-year wait due to Covid-19, Peterborough Cathedral will host the Museum of Natural History’s traveling exhibition, T.rex: The Killer Question in the 900-year-old building on July 18 to September 3.

Plans to present the exhibition in 2020 and 2021 had to be abandoned due to the pandemic.

This world-class exhibit features nine roaring, moving animatronic dinosaurs of varying sizes, including a three-quarter-length T.rex.

A 12-meter-long static model of a T. rex and a life-size T. rex skeleton will also be on display, facing each other across the cathedral’s transepts.
