I kind of resent that the zoo fixes its prices throughout the year according to peak times (generally “high season” means the kids are off school), rather than seasonally. Prices range from £13.60 for adults and £9.90 for kids aged 3-15 during low season, to £16.90 and £12.45 respectively in high season. See the website for prices when you’re planning to visit.
Offer codes and vouchers are frequently advertised online – scour the net before purchasing.
This isn’t a cheap day out for the family, so book online and save 10 per cent.
Avoid Bank Holidays - the zoo is extremely busy.
The post code to use for sat-nav devices is CH2 1EU.
The zoo is not within walking distance of the city centre. See my advice on how to get around for helpful hints on getting to the zoo.
Make the most of your entry fee and plan your day around animal talks and feeding times, advertised online and at the entrance of the zoo.
