Found opposite the Jubilee monorail station, the room houses a powered, adjustable bench with a shower washing facility, a height-adjustable sink with soap dispenser, plus an automatic paper hand towel dispenser and a warm air hand dryer unit are also available.

The toilet has easy access hand rails and the room also has a hoist from which all the units in the room can be accessed with ease.

There is plenty of space to move easily should assistance by carers be required.

Chris Williams, Zoo Services Manager, said: “We are delighted to now offer some world class accessible changing and toileting facilities within the zoo. We are now confident we can very much cater to the needs of our less able bodied visitors.”
