Please note: As we adhere to COVID-19 guidelines, we are operating at a limited capacity to allow social distancing. There are two designated visiting slots. If you do not arrive in time for your allocated session you will not be allowed to enter the zoo.

We are operating this restriction for the health and safety of you, our staff and our animals. This may unfortunately mean that you will need to choose a different booking date if the session capacity limit has been reached.

Once you have booked your ticket, there may be a queue upon arrival which we will try to process as quickly as possible.

Note: We provide free admission for carers accompanying visitors, therefore carers are not required to book a ticket in advance. To gain free carer’s admission, the carer must provide proof (in the form of documentation) to show that you are in receipt of carer’s allowance, a doctor’s letter or other relevant paperwork. Alternatively, the visitor who requires a carer can provide evidence of their disability.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. We look forward to seeing you all!

Online tickets are strictly for standard admission into the zoo. Tickets can also be purchased by telephoning the zoo on 028 9077 6277. For more information on each of our event’s please visit the events page or call us on 028 9077 6277. View all our events
