We're parents too. We understand that a great day out requires getting the basics right. We keep it simple:

We’re making some changes at the zoo...

We’re delighted to be in the middle of a 10 year period during which we will spend £17m on developing the zoo. This includes our £8m Tropical House exhibit showcasing a host of new species including colourful and charismatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects.

Meerkats

Our Meerkat enclosure is now open, you'll find them up by Cafe Graze.

Wallaby Walkthrough

Thanks to a very generous legacy donation, Wallaby Walkthrough has been revamped to make it a better experience for both our wallabies and guests. 

Lemur Loop

Due to enclosure maintenance, our ring-tailed lemurs, black and white ruffed lemurs and crowned lemurs are currently behind the scenes. You can still find black and white ruffed lemurs, Alaotran reed lemurs and red-ruffed lemurs at Life Among the Trees. 

Remember to keep an eye out for our recent new arrivals and watch this space for any updates.
