Disclaimer

Tickets will not be posted to you for security purposes but will be left for collection on the day of your visit.

The Group Leader only should report to the Ark Gift Shop if collecting pre-paid tickets, or the main pay desk if paying on the day. The leader should then return to their group and distribute the tickets before the group attempts to enter the zoo. This prevents the main entrance building getting congested and speeds your entry.

To qualify for our school rate, the visit must be booked by a school teacher on a school visit. Groups of students making a general visit to the Zoo (i.e. without a teacher or to complete coursework together), do not qualify for this rate and must pay full admission upon entry. Students and teachers must enter the Zoo together as a group to benefit from these discounted rates; we do not print out individual tickets.

Invoice option cannot be selected if total amount is less than £50.00



NB: there is a £10 administration fee for schools requesting to be invoiced.
