Directions & Where to Stay

There are lots of ways to get to the zoo. We'd love it if you could travel by public transport so we've got all the info and some great deals if you're coming by bike, bus, train or on foot.

If you decide to come by car there's plenty of FREE parking right by the main entrance. 

Take a look at where we are on this map. Once you get onto the A41, from whichever direction, simply stay on that road until you reach a roundabout with a large wooden ark on it. From there follow the signs into the zoo. Sat Navs get confused so please ignore them once you get onto the A41! Do not turn down Flag Lane North as it is a dead end.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay near the zoo then take a look at our accommodation page here.

The smartest way to the zoo

Travelling by train? You can buy our combination ticket at any railway ticket office. It gives you entry to the zoo and return bus travel from the station. Find out more here.
