"I attended a hen do just over a week ago at Colchester Zoo and it was absolutely fantastic. Kelly our guide was informative fun and friendly. We got close up to the animals had a few fun games (nothing too taxing mentally or physically). There was a dedicated room where we had breakfast and lunch the food was way above expectations and plentiful. It was just the best day ever. All the staff were really helpful. Would recommend wholeheartedly. We were a group of 8 including 2 mum's and everyone was impressed" - Jane, May 2018

"Went to a hen party at the zoo. Had such an amazing day meeting some of the animals close up. Going into the lemur enclosure was a personal highlight for me. Our guides for the day Becky and Amanda were awesome and the rest of the staff were very friendly and made the day extra special. I would highly recommend the hen package to anyone planning a hen do it's amazing value for money and great memories made." - Katie, May 2018
