Due to COVID-19 The Outpost Gift Shop is closed until further notice.We apologise for any inconvenience caused but this decision has been made with the safety of visitors and staff in mind.
‘The Outpost’ Gift Shop is now complete!
Following the recent development throughout 2019 and early 2020 The Outpost Gift Shop is now fully refurbished and open!
As you exit the Zoo through the gift shop a member of staff will be on hand to provide re-entry wristbands for those visitors who are popping out to the car and require re-entry.
Past this point you will walk through our two new, modern exit gates into The Outpost. The layout of the shop is open plan with a bright and light feel as well as smart shelving and animal graphics to add to the atmosphere.
As well as a new look we’ve also introduced some new products including our very own selection of ‘My Moments’ products which allow you to personalise a number of Colchester Zoo souvenirs, from keyrings and magnets to drinking flasks and bags! We are always refreshing our product lines with new gift ideas.
The space also includes The Outpost Coffee Lounge. A new eatery that offers a contemporary lounge area as a great place to meet with friends before a day of exploration and somewhere to relax and enjoy a bite to eat before setting off on your journey home. Take away options are also available.
