Safety Measures - Covid-19  

We want visitors to enjoy themselves at the zoo which means safety comes first, and it is important everyone follows the government guidance to protect themselves and others.  

There are a wide range of safety measures in place to protect you, our staff, and our animals. We have reduced the capacity of each time slot, created one-way routes, added hand-sanitising stations and will be asking everyone to wear face coverings in indoor areas.
