Colchester Zoo


There’s still plenty of fun to be had at Colchester Zoo throughout the winter months so why not stop by and explore their undercover enclosures and fantastic indoor areas!

Colchester Zoo is rated the 2nd best zoo in the UK by The Tripadvisor Travellers ‘Choice Awards. Colchester Zoo has the longest straight underwater tunnel in Europe at 24m long offering the perfect way to view their Patagonian sealions during cooler weather! This fantastic tunnel leads you on to Orangutan Forest, home to two male orangutans and just the place to keep warm whilst discovering all about these great apes.

Other indoor areas include Australian Rainbows, a tropical walkthrough exhibit home to group of rainbow lorikeets; the Sensation Station, a great place to stay dry and get up close to a number of small species at this interaction centre!

As well as a large number of other undercover and indoor viewing areas Colchester Zoo’s catering outlets also offer hot drinks, snacks and seasonal meals across the park with indoor seating to warm up and plan your route!

With so much to see and do including the zoo’s very own indoor soft play area Jungle Tumble, Colchester Zoo is a great place to visit all year round!
