Enjoy a family day out this Summer!

There’s no need to worry about how to spend your days during the summer – Colchester Zoo is a great day out for all ages to enjoy!

As you walk around the zoo there are plenty of play areas to try out, including the indoor soft play area Jungle Tumble so the kids can release their wild side! Learn more about the animals and see them up close by watching an array of encounters, PLUS you can also feed some of our gentle giants at FREE public feeding sessions with our elephants and giraffe! PLUS loads more fantastic interactive areas for you to enjoy!

Join us on the terrace this Summer for Zooper events* with Zoo Crew parties, balloon making, Zooniversity Challenge and much more!
