In line with the latest government guidance the zoo is open and we are welcoming education visitors to the zoo. We are following the latest government guidance and so some of our indoor spaces are shut for now and we ask that all visitors over the age of 11 wear a mask in indoor areas.
Please check the advice of your local authority on school trips before booking your visit.
