What areas remain closed?

Some areas, including some play equipment and our indoor houses remain closed. These closures are in place because social distancing is not currently possible or because they include, by their nature, multiple high-frequency touch points.

Animal Houses are not permitted to be open at this stage of the Government Roadmap.

Similarly, our ‘interactive’ displays and the Activity Centre will be out of use to minimise ‘touch points’ and we will not be holding our daily Animal Talks, so as to ensure crowds do not form.

Whilst we appreciate that these closures may disappoint some visitors, safety must remain the top priority for us all.

In response to Government guidelines related to Avian Influenza, you will notice that there are additional biosecurity measures in place when you visit. All visitors must walk across biosecurity matting on arrival/exit, and before entering/exiting both Seal & Penguin Coast and the Flamingo Walkthrough.

In line with Government guidelines, we are only able to offer takeaway service at our food outlets.

  • Twilight World
  • Bat Walkthrough
