Colchester Zoo, weekday 2 for 1 entry and return rail fare with Greater Anglia trains

Posted on behalf of Greater Anglia

Colchester Zoo is home to over 260 species set in 60 acres of parkland and lakes!

As you navigate your way around Colchester Zoo you’ll visit many different habitats; from the humid home of our Komodo Dragons to the zoo’s very own Africa plain, Kingdom of the Wild, home to white rhino, giraffes, zebras and more. There’s so much to see and do including the chance to hand feed the elephants and giraffes yourself!

Exclusive offer
