All you need to know

...about planning your nursery, school or college visit is here on these pages!

We welcome over 100,000 educational visitors every year to the zoo, so we know just what’s important to you when you’re planning your trip. We know you want a safe environment, to know where to eat (especially if it’s wet!), where to store things, how to do a pre-visit, how much a visit costs and how to get the best learning experience for your pupils.

Take a look at the links below if you want to ask us any further questions, just give our Education Team a call on 01244 650205 or 389444.

FREE visits for school children this winter!

In July we announced a commitment to providing free entry to the zoo for 35,000 school pupils visiting between November 2017 and February 2018, in a bid to broaden the impact of our work as a conservation and education charity inspiring the next generation of conservationists. We have been delighted by the reaction of schools, many of them from areas we have never previously worked with, helping us to expand the reach of our educational activities. If you would like to book a school visit during this time and have not yet done so, we regret to inform you that the free places are fully booked. However, we still welcome your visit and invite you to take advantage of our specially discounted educational rates here...
