MAY 2024 OPENING SCHEDULE

OPEN ALL SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS PLUS

BANK HOLIDAYS AND SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.

OPENING TIMES 10am - 4:00pm

LAST ADMISSION 3.00pm

It is no longer essential to pre-book tickets, though we still encourage this as it is the easiest way to crosscheck the dates we are open.

Season Ticket Holders are no longer required to pre-book, but please do still check via the booking system whether the zoo will be open on the day of your planned visit.

We reserve the right to alter opening times without notice. This will not affect pre-booked tickets except in extreme circumstances, for example in stormy windy weather.

   

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

All visitors, including season ticket holders, are advised to pre-book their visit online to guarantee admission, but this no longer essential.

If a particular date is not available it will be because we are not scheduled to open that day, so we ask that you consider booking another date instead.

PLEASE DO NOT visit if you are, or you have been in contact with someone who is, showing symptoms of or tested positive for COVID-19. The desease might be in a more controlled stage for humans but may unfortunately still affect many animal species severely.

The safety and welfare of our visitors, staff and animals is our top priority, so we kindly ask that all visitors adhere to the safety measures we have implemented, so that we can ensure the safest experience possible for everyone.

No food, including children’s snacks, is allowed around the zoo.

If you have not visited before please click on the yellow box to the right for more information on what to expect and how to get the best out of your visit.

All other standard entry terms and conditions apply.

   

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS & TOP TIPS

   

WHEN DO I NEED TO SHOW MY TICKET?

 

The admission booth is located at the entrance to the car park as you pull in off the main road. Please have your ticket ready to show (on your phone/tablet etc) at this point.

Please do not print your ticket, the admissions staff are instructed not to handle/take anything from you and it’s environmentally friendly - saving paper too.

If you do not have a smart phone please have the booking reference number and surname of the booking ready to give. If there are several cars within your group please ensure each driver has this information ready to give along with the number of adults/children etc within their car.

TOP TIP: Mobile signal is notoriously bad around the zoo so we advise you to take a screen shot/photo to show instead.

   

WHY CAN’T I BOOK TICKETS FOR A PARTICULAR DATE?

 

It may be that we are fully booked or not scheduled to open that day, so we ask that you consider booking another date instead.

   

WHAT’S THE LATEST I CAN BOOK TICKETS TO VISIT?

 

You can book up to 1 hour prior to your visit. Tickets are available on a first-come first-served basis, we cannot guarantee your admission if you do not have a pre-booked ticket.

We reserve the right to withdraw tickets from sale at short notice if needed.

   

CAN I GET A REFUND OR CHANGE MY DATE IF I CAN NO LONGER ATTEND?

 

Tickets are not refundable and our standard entry terms and conditions apply.

Your ticket is valid only for the date and time booked at the time of purchase and cannot be transferred to another day if you are no longer able to attend, if the weather is not good, or you have booked the wrong date by mistake.

If it is raining on the day of your booking don't forget your waterproofs and footwear suitable for the country-park like trails that lead around the zoo.

TOP TIP: We strongly recommend you double check your booking (and the weather forecast) before proceeding to the checkout and completing your purchase.

   

CAN I BRING A PICNIC?

 

You are welcome to picnic on the grassy parking area which is within the zoo gates so you can return here throughout your visit. You are encouraged to bring picnic blankets/chairs to use in this area, especially recommended if it’s been raining. There is also a covered area alongside the children's play area behind the toilet block, where you will also find hand washing facilities.

Through the restrictions imposed by the COVID pandemic, it has shown us that not allowing picnics within zoo is actually better for our animals. Not only do we no longer have to spend time picking up people’s rubbish, which could cause harm to both our animals and native species who choose to live with us, but also prevents people offering their own food to our animals, all of whom are on strictly prepared diets catered to their individual needs.

No food, including children’s snacks, is allowed around the zoo.

   

WHERE CAN I PUT MY LITTER?

 

Your litter and picnic rubbish poses a risk to both wildlife and our animals. To minimise the risk all bins have been removed to help keep our animals safe - we ask that you please take your own rubbish home and recycle responsibly.

   

All of the above is subject to change due to government guidelines. 
We will keep this document updated as and when further information becomes available.


We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for your support during this difficult time.
We look forward to seeing you.
