I would but it's nearly 2hrs drive away anyway voted hot 🔥


Possibly stay in a hotel the night before? That's what we do. We considered doing it for this one as we're from the Midlands.

A cheap under £30 Premier Inn driving down on the Friday night might be a good idea?

Fantastic zoo indeed and for £10 that's a bargin. I've been a few times the last few years and always enjoy it and can easily spend most of a day there walking around seeing all the different animals. Heat added 🔥
Interesting header image given that the penguin enclosure is closed for refurb right now. Just a heads up for those thinking of going. The rest of the Zoo is well worth a £10 though.
Not been for a few months now but website says Penguin Shores is closing for refurb in Jan 2020 but they are still viewable from the Inca Trail.

Def worth a visit best zoo I have been to
Great zoo.
We went Saturday and saw the penguins in the underwater bit; there were loads swimming around chasing each other!

Thanks @AMO now just check my shift pattern and off we go 😁
Wouldn't most animals (esp the ones from tropical habitat) stay indoors and won't be available to be seen in January given how cold it gets outside?

I don't blame the company running Colchester zoo but then they should advertise it as 'Colchester zoo lite' for a tenner.
I still like visiting (used Tesco clubcard vouchers last time) as they have a great collection of animals and the facilities inside the zoo are good too.
£40 for a family of 4. Not much of a bargain

That Travelodge on the A12 at Feering isn't far away, depending on dates wanting to go there's some for under £30 and it's a bit easier to get to from there than some of those on the other side of the town and the Braintree ones would give 2 lots of traffic to get through, much less traffic from Feering usually. Another good thing about that one is it's less than 15 mins away and if it's busy there are other easy ways round. There's also a Gregg's / Burger King next door so plenty of breakfast and dinner options

I stay at the holiday Inn north of Colchester and it's reasonable.
Easy to get to the zoo and maybe the coast too if you've time.

A lot of the animals have both indoor and outdoor enclosures that you can view them in, ie. if you can’t spot the orang utan in its outdoor enclosure then you can go indoors to view its huge indoor enclosure, the indoors area for visitors is huge. There are also things like sea lions, koi carp, penguins, butterflies, giant turtle and many other animals viewable from inside. Any questions let me know as we are a frequent visitor (we’ve been going at least once a month for the past few years)
I'd reccomend going on a sunny day so the glass the animals are behind hasn't got condensation or mist on that makes it difficult to see most.
Also go extremely early in the day to avoid traffic buildup and if lucky enough, go when the children are back at school.
I went yesterday and the amount of people was ridiculous and the traffic coming in was dreadful. Never ever seen it like that before. Ques everywhere for food establishments and the soft play you couldn't see any of it without children on, adults were struggling to find a seat.
Great value if you pick the right time to go - went last year also around the 10th january and was alot quieter and easier to feed animals.
What’s a good zoo in the south east?
I have a 1 year and 6 year old girls. Would it be a good idea to take them to this zoo considering the cold weather?? Please reply. Thanks

There’s a lot of walking and hills to push prams up but nothing to stop you enjoying your day

No reason why not, we're about an hour from Colchester but can't count how many times we've been, our first trip with our now 8 year daughter was when she was 3 months old one October. Think our most recent cold visit was in 2017 to see Santa when she was 6, still loads of animals to see, if they are not out then just head to their indoor enclosure as someone said above. Just wrap up warm but if you've never been before be very aware of the steep nature of the hills the zoo is built on however there is a yellow line on the paths that guide you the least steep way round, you'll probably still keep warm just going up and down the hills! There's always tropical enclosures to nip in to warm up too. Well worth visiting as it's normally £25 each in the summer and you can feed both the elephants and giraffes included in the price. Hope that helps.
A great deal, thanks OP.

I'd recommend the castle one. Recently built and right in town centre, can walk through the castle park into town. Lots of food options for the evening too.

Was there today, it wasn’t closed for us.
Cheeky!

We live 15 mins away from the zoo, we used to buy annual passes but my
Kids are older and got bored going every few weeks but will definitely get these as haven’t been for a while now.
It’s a huge zoo that is constantly having work done to update it, the penguin enclosure is next to be redeveloped in January

Hi, would you recommend going there on a weekend and in this cold weather with an 18 month old baby?
We went with a 5 year old and a 7 month old and they all loved it!

Yes - you have to book the day before. Take a picnic - there is an indoor picnic area
If anyone goes, be sure to look out for the new baby White Rhino that was born at the weekend.
