Visitors will soon be allowed back to a popular Cornish zoo following its closure due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Newquay Zoo will officially reopen on Monday 29th June for annual pass holders, and for the wider general public on Wednesday 1st July. 

Staff at the animal sanctuary has said that all guests including Annual Pass holders will have to pre-book an arrival time slot for a specific date via the zoo's online booking system.  

Guests can book day ticket and/or time slots for the first three weeks from Monday 29th June, through its website. 

However, the zoo has implemented the following measures to ensure the maximum safety of its visitors and animals:

  • Protective screening at contact points. This includes the admission desks, reception, food outlets and shop
  • Card payments are preferred
  • Floor markings around the site including in Café lemur and the shop
  • Hand sanitiser points around the zoo
  • Regular cleaning will be carried out around the zoo
  • Signage around the zoo to remind guests and staff of social distancing and handwashing guidelines
  • Suggested one-way routes and lane markings around the site. All are fully accessible for wheelchairs
  • All indoor exhibits remain closed
  • Outdoor play areas remain closed
  • No feeding times or keepers talks to prevent gathering of crowds
  • No face painting
  • Café Lemur will only be offering a takeaway service only. Other food outlets will be open around the zoo. Floor markings will be in place to manage queueing.

You can find more information about its safety measures on the Newquay Zoo website.

Staff have asked for visitors to be patients during this extremely busy time as they work hard to answer all enquiries.
