From the 17th April 2023, our Zoo Pass prices will be increasing.

It is our priority to ensure everything we offer is focused on giving our visitors that first-class experience at an affordable cost and continue to provide great value for money. However, amidst rising costs, which we have been absorbing until now, we have to look at our annual price increases carefully.

We are continuously developing with visitors and animals in mind. From toilet facilities, food outlets and pathways to improved animal viewing areas and new interactive activities, plus much more! This year we are introducing something BIG, the redevelopment of our old displays arena is underway, and we hope this NEW attraction will be open for Summer 2023.

Pass Kind:Zoo Pass Price until 16th April:Pass price from 17th April 2023
Adult 16 – 59yrs £69.99£70.50
Child 3 – 15yrs £49.99£50.50
Senior 60yrs + £59.99£60.50

Please be reassured that we have done all we can to keep costs as low as possible during these challenging times. We understand how the current inflation is affecting everyone and have taken this into account. Our general admission and Zoo Passes have not increased as much as needed to cover our increasing costs because we are committed to remaining affordable and hope that by keeping our prices as low as possible you will continue to support Colchester Zoo with your visits.

There is no doubt that we are in a challenging climate but hopefully together we can get through this difficult period which we feel could be financially harder than the pandemic.

We understand that this price increase will be met with disappointment, but we thank you for your understanding. You can renew or purchase a Zoo Pass before the 17th April to take advantage of the current prices.

2023 is set to be a BIG year for us as we celebrate our 60th birthday with special events and activities, so there’s no better time to purchase a Zoo Pass. Plus, until the 16th April, we are offering 60 FREE days when a new pass is purchased. Existing Passholders can also chose to either have their renewal discount OR the 60 FREE days!
