While Covid-19 regulations may have eased, Dudley Zoo will still have some measures in place for the continued safety of their staff, animals and visitors.
The online pre-booking system will continue for general visitors throughout the school holidays however zoo members and ticket holders no longer need to book in advance and will be able to show their pass at the entrance.
All animal exhibits will be open, as well as the 11th century castle keep and hand sanitiser stations will remain in place around the 40-acre site, with additional facilities around newly reopened areas. Face masks will still be required in the walkthrough Lemur Wood exhibit, however they will be optional in indoor areas, including the Safari Shop.
The land train and vintage chairlift, which both transport visitors from the bottom to the top of the zoo, will be returning and running every day for visitor use and on-site catering facilities will be open as normal - but picnics are still welcome!
Finally, the one-way route around the zoo will no longer be mandatory but after proving so popular over the last year, visitors can continue to use it by following the yellow arrows on the floor if they wish.
