While most of the zoo is open to visitors as normal, there are some exceptions:
- Our lemur walkthroughs will remain closed for now as primates have an increased risk from Covid-19, but you can still see them in their indoor and outdoor areas
- The penguin parade is also still postponed for the time being due to the risks of avian flu in the UK
- Our monkey house is closed for development, but you can spot our primates in their outdoor areas, with other cheeky monkey species throughout the zoo too!
Sometimes we have to close viewing for an animal at short notice for their wellbeing or check ups by our expert vets and keepers.
Although we will always do our best to help visitors see as many of our animals as possible, they may well decide to go for a nap or some quiet time in a hidden area (just like some humans we know!).
Our top tip is to go back to different animals at different times of the day to give yourself the best chance of spotting them all out and about.
