Temporary Zoo Closure as of Monday 23rd March

It is with great pain and sorrow we have had to take the decision to close Colchester Zoo down to visitors from the morning of Monday 23rd March.

The decision, after consideration, is taken with the interest of everyone, visitors, members of staff and our social responsibilities.

Due to the zoo’s temporary closure, tickets are not currently available to purchase. If you would like to support us you can make a donation online.

We are very grateful for the support we have received and continue to receive during these difficult times we are all facing – we’d like to say a sincere thank you to everyone who has donated, offered comments of support and assistance during this time.
