  • Ticket prices with optional Action for the Wild Donation

    All ticket prices below include a £1 donation per ticket to Colchester Zoo’s charity Action for the Wild. 

    If you would like to support Action for the Wild when booking your tickets please select the ‘With Donation’ ticket selection. 

    Due to the pandemic Colchester Zoo has not been able to support conservation projects as it has done in the past due to ensuring the survival of the Zoo. If every visitor donates just £1 per ticket, we would be able to help conservation again without taking from the zoo which in turn will help towards the zoo’s future.
