Special needs

All our classrooms are fully accessible and themed to create an exciting learning experience.

The classrooms are home to amazing animal artefacts such as skin, furs, bones and shells which your group are welcome to explore and the Zoo itself is a great multi-sensory place full of amazing sights, sounds and smells – we even have sign language boards at every enclosure for those with hearing problems.

The Zoo has plenty of facilities for disabled guests including disabled toilets at various locations and wheelchairs can be hired at the Information Desk upon arrival (we do recommend pre-booking these). Please visit the Accessibility page for more details.

To book your school trips please fill in the booking form including a preferred date and at least 2 or 3 alternative dates. Alternatively, you can speak to the team on 01803 697510.
