Tribute to Her Majesty
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Nothing can quite prepare you for such news and our thoughts are especially with the Royal Family during this devastating time.
As a member of BIAZA, the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums, we would like to share the following tribute;
“Her Majesty will be remembered fondly as an animal lover and a fantastic advocate for the work of zoos and aquariums to save species and create a better world. She enjoyed a lifetime of visits to zoos from memorable times as a Princess meeting giant pandas to meeting elephants as Queen.“
We stand in solidarity with all those affected by this heart-breaking news, it is an extremely sad time for the country and people around the world.
Colchester Zoo will be closed on the date of the State Funeral as a mark of respect.
Please be assured we will be in touch with those visitors whose bookings are affected by this closure.
