Pre- booking to visit Colchester Zoo is essential.
All those wishing to visit MUST pre-book a TIMED TICKET online in advance.
This includes Zoo Passholders wishing to visit before 1.00pm on weekends and those with pre-paid or complimentary tickets.
Zoo Passholders can now visit after 1:00pm WITHOUT the need to pre-book at weekends. Midweek we are trialling reopening the zoo to all valid Zoo Passholders without the need to pre-book.
We will monitor our capacity throughout the day and entry is dependent on the number of people with the zoo, we may therefore be required to operate a 1 out 1 in policy.
Prices are correct at time of publishing and are subject to change.
Tickets are currently available to book until the 11th October 2020.
