Join us this February Half Term as we kick off our 60th birthday celebrations!

Meet our Zoo Crew as they celebrate our 60th birthday throughout Half Term. After partying with your favourite Colchester Zoo characters, why not take part in our Zoo Crew sticker trail? Try to ‘catch them all’ to complete the trail and receive a small token reward at the end of the day!

Make the most of the school holidays and see over 160 species from around the world as you walk through our beautiful grounds and gardens. PLUS we have a number of outdoor play areas open for the kids to release their wild side, an interactive zone, daily talks from our Animal Care Team and so much more!
