Hatton Adventure World in Warwickshire is celebrating the 60th birthday of its pet donkey, Bubbles, who is believed to be the oldest donkey in the world. Bubbles is thought to have been born in 1959, which is the date shown on her pet passport, making her the equivalent of an incredible 180 in human years.

Bubbles moved to the farm in the early 1990s and has been at home there ever since. The farm is home to many other donkeys, but Bubbles was the first, and her latest birthday means she has taken the crown from a donkey called Suzy, who entered the Guinness Book of World Records for being the world’s oldest donkey back in 2002 at the age of 54.

Richard Craddock, Adventure World Manager at Hatton Adventure World said: “Bubbles loves attention and is still going strong despite her grand old age. She is surprisingly very placid and not particularly stubborn like donkeys usually are. She loves attention and company from our visitors which is probably what has kept her going for so long. She's also very popular with the staff and quite often gets preferential treatment from them!”

The all-inclusive price at Hatton ensures a carefree day out on the 100-acre site with up to 30 shows and activities daily, a 4-acre laser combat field and one of the largest indoor play areas in the Midlands.  There are over 450 creatures great and small, 40 birds of prey and 150 Guinea Pigs, all located in the Warwickshire countryside with food available in 5 outlets, a shopping village, free parking and an easy to find location.

Hatton Adventure World is open every day throughout the year (excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day) from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information please visit the website at www.hattonworld.com/adventure-world or telephone 01926 843411.
