following the latest advice from the UK Government

It is with much sadness that we have to temporarily close our gates to visitors until further notice. This is for the safety of our visitors, staff as well as our animals and our social responsibilities to assist with the increased self-isolation guidelines being issued by the Government and Public Health England.

Please be assured that our animals will remain well fed and cared for by our dedicated zookeepers, vets and other essential zoo staff, just because we are closed does not mean that the work stops!

Mikey, one of our much loved keepers whom many of you will know, has set up a GoFundMe page for those of you looking to make a donation, please click here .

If you have pre-booked tickets or an experience booked….

All animal experiences are suspended until the end of May.  If you have not heard from our team already, you could always drop us an email on lintonzoo@hotmail.co.uk to help speed the process along.

Please be patient and allow us time to respond as we are working hard to contact everybody to allow you to re-book again in the future.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has shown us their support at this difficult time. Whether you have made a monetary donation, dropped off fruit or veg, or even just sent a message of support, please be assured that we are extremely grateful to you all. Knowing people are taking time out of their own hectic lives to think of us really does boost our team morale!
We rely on the income made from admissions and annual memberships, we do not receive any grants or supplementary income from elsewhere. Whilst these are challenging times for everyone, if you are able to make a donation, no matter how big or small, it will greatly contribute to the continued smooth running of the zoo during this closed period.

Make a purchase from our amazon wishlist

Like everyone else we are having a difficult time sourcing fresh fruit and veg. We normally shop around all of the supermarkets to find the best produce at the best price, but with all the panic buying it it is certainly slim pickings at the moment!

If you do find you have a little bit more than you need these are items that would be helpful if dropped at the front gates.

Any fruit or vegetables really, but in particular:

  • bananas,
  • pears,
  • apples (particularly coxes or royal galas),
  • grapes,
  • blueberries,
  • oranges,
  • paw paw
  • cabbages,
  • swede,
  • sweet potato
  • celery
  • seedy brown bread

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we'll try to keep you updated with news and photos as much as possible.

Thank you all, once again, for your support. Please do follow all advice given by the Government to help us get through this as quickly as possible. We hope you all stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in, hopefully, the not too far off future.
