Details for Booking

As part of our charitable commitment to education we are delighted to offer our education classes at a very special reduced rate. This price gives you admission to the Park for the day as well as the booked education class. This reduced rate is only given to education groups using our education services, not for general or group visits.

Schools £6 per student
College and Universities £8 per student
Specialist Tertiary Sessions £9 per student 


The above are subject to a minimum payment.


We provide free admission for supervisory adults as follows:

Nursery  1  adult per 4 children  
Primary 1 adult per 7 children
Secondary 1 adult per 10 children
Special Schools  1 adult per pupil if required
Other Ages  1 adult per 10 students
Extra adults* Group rate

*RZSS adult members are admitted free on production of a valid membership card.

Due to limited space, the number of adults attending the classes in the Education Centre must be restricted to the ratios given above. Of course, you can bring as many adults as you wish for supervision in the Zoo Park. Children who are RZSS members are still required to pay the education charge. All children under 16 must be supervised at all times when in the Park.


Payment can be made on arrival to the Park by cash, credit card or cheque (payable to RZSS). Alternatively, schools can arrange to be invoiced after the visit.

Minimum charges and Cancellation

Please note there is a minimum charge of £40 per class (except special schools: £25) and if you cancel within 2 weeks of a scheduled visit a cancellation fee of £40 is charged unless a rebooking is made at the same time. If your group comes to the Park but misses their session you will be charged the group rate for all members of the group, free admission for supervisory adults is only for Education sessions.
