In the meantime we appreciate that many of you have some questions following the closure therefore we have tried to answer as many of these for you as possible below:

To give Colchester Zoo more of a chance to get through this period we will be working on reduced staff numbers so please bear with us as we are working hard to respond to enquiries as quickly as possible. We hope that we have answered your query via our FAQ page otherwise please email us at and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We will continue to keep you up to date by Bringing the Zoo to you so do follow us on social media and via our website and keep in touch.

We hope we will be able to welcome you back to Colchester Zoo soon, in the meantime please stay safe and look after yourselves.
