Plan your education visit

We advise that you book your education sessions well in advance and recommend at least four hours for your visit - this will allow time to explore the Zoo. If you are bringing a group of 100 or more, then please contact us as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment. Sessions are available between 9.30am and 5pm on weekdays throughout the year.
