Opening Times

We're open every day from 10am, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day with FREE on-site parking.

Our opening hours change a little through the year, depending on the season and when the schools are off.

The Diamond Jubilee Quarter at the main entrance opens at 9.30am, so you can enjoy a coffee in Bembe Coffee Shop or browse our Gift Shop before entering the main zoo when it opens at 10am.

Don't forget - buy your tickets online and you can beat the queues with Fast Track admission.
