Main entrance at Colchester Zoo

Back in September 2018 our construction team began work on the zoo’s main entrance to create a brand new admissions building as part of phase one of our ticketing, admissions and shop redevelopment. On the 20th March 2019 the first phase of the project was completed and the new admission building was opened for our visitors!

Colchester Zoo’s new admissions building now provides quicker and easier access for all visitors into the park, with a dedicated admissions area separate to the ticketing office, which for now is temporarily situated in a dedicated building in the Car Park whilst phase 2 of the development is worked on to provide a brand new ticketing office linking into the admissions building.

All of these improvements are being made with the visitors in mind, to provide a first class experience right from the point they enter the zoo. Watch this space for more information as this exciting project develops.

We would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation whilst these works take place and do apologise for any minimal disruption caused in the meantime.
