There are several voucher/discount websites that have taken it upon themselves to advertise discounted admission to Linton Zoo, PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE NOT VALID OFFERS AND THE OFFERS WILL NOT BE FUFILLED BY US.
This is not something we have approved and unfortunately we have no control over what they advertise. We keep our admission costs as low as possible for every visitor throughout the year and are unable to offer any further discount on this.
The only exception is the 50% off entry with a valid season ticket/annual pass from other regional zoos listed below.


Linton Zoo operates a policy of no refunds or exchanges for zoo admissions purchased on entry, booked online or by telephone.

Please note that the zoo is an outdoor attraction with country park like woodland trails, we are unable to refund admission fees due to inclement weather, or animals resting, nesting, breeding, hiding or sleeping. We reserve the right to vary animals on display and cannot guarantee that you would be able to view all of the species listed on this website at the time of your visit.

These are a legal requirement and it will be assumed that anyone crossing a safety barrier has malicious intent in mind.

By entering the premises you agree to abide by the terms and conditions set by management, failure to do so will result in you being escorted from the premises.

Most areas of the zoo is accessible for people using wheelchairs. Expect mostly Country Park like pathways with some uneven and mixed surfaces including roots in places, we are also set on a slight incline. Whilst we have many regular visitors who enjoy the zoo from their wheelchairs, some visitors have told us that they have found getting a wheelchair around is a hard push at times. Because of the uneven and Country Park like nature of our woodland trails around the zoo we do not recommend motorised mobility scooters or chairs, especially those with a narrow wheel base.

A couple of our older buildings do not have permanant ramps, if you find you are unable to access any building please ask for assistance, as ramps are available.

We do not receive grants or any funding to pass on and as our admission fees are already the lowest in the country for a zoo of this size, we are unable to offer further reductions for concessionary tickets. Our admission prices include 20% VAT, so if you are VAT registered you can claim this back.



We regret dogs and pets are not allowed in the zoo including the car park - this includes guide dogs and assistant dogs as this has been known to upset the animals.
