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 lockdown guidelines issued by the Government.

Please be assured that our animals will remain well fed and cared for by our wonderful dedicated zookeepers, vets and other essential zoo staff.

We rely on the income made from admissions and annual memberships, we do not receive any grants or supplementary income from elsewhere. Now, in what should be one of our busiest times of the year, we’ve had to close our gates and cut of our income supply.


We may be closed but that does not mean that the work stops, neither do the bills!

We still need your support – now more than ever!

There are a number of different ways you can offer additional support to help us with the ongoing costs of running the zoo.

If you find you have any extra fruit or veg in your shopping basket and would like to make a donation, please do let us know to arrange a suitable time to deliver. Any fruit or veg would be extremely welcome, but items that are especially useful are:

  • Bananas
  • Pears
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Cranberries
  • Apples (esp Royal Gala and Coxes)
  • Oranges
  • Paw paw
  • Cabbages
  • Pomegranate
  • Swede
  • Sweet potato
  • Celery
  • Seedy brown bread
  • Jar of honey (any variety)

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.

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!

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.
