Exploring The Zoo


There’s a lot to explore in our 110-acre zoo. But you don’t have to do it all on foot!

You could get a giraffe’s eye view from the Zoofari Monorail, or take a gentle ride on the Waterbus.

As well as getting to see the animals from new angles, you’ll have the chance to learn more about them, and our conservation work.

Even if the weather goes off, our wet weather walk is full of good ideas. And if you need to hire a wheelchair or a buggy, our Zoomobility service is open every day.

  • Wet Weather Walk

    We've got lots of large indoor exhibits so even if the weather's not at its finest your visit will be just as fun and action packed!
