Temporary Zoo Closure as of Monday 23rd March
It is with great pain and sorrow we have had to take the decision to close Colchester Zoo down to visitors from the morning of Monday 23rd March.
For more information please read the letter written by the directors of Colchester Zoo under our news section.
Beautiful, Unusual & Rare Species Of The Animal Kingdom
We are proudly listed as the 11th best zoo around the world and in the top 2 zoos in the UK as part of the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Attractions.
During your visit to Colchester Zoo, you will see many species from around the world and can learn more about them at our fantastic daily encounters, giving you the chance to see our animals being fed, watch a training session or perhaps just quiz their keepers!
