COVID-19 Bookings Update - 6th July 2020

Zoo2U at school

We remain closed at the moment but are working towards opening our doors for you guys to visit us soon. Our previous offerings include highly interactive animal experiences and outreach services which are also not yet allowed to restart, as these would breach the 2m social distancing law. We're hoping this will change soon and will update again as soon as we have news.

As an alternative we are able to offer modified versions of our services, adhering to the social distance legislation for Outreach experiences. In addition we've created a new set of Virtual Animal Experiences (click here for more), which offer a great encounter at a reduced cost.

We are anticipating that we will be able to restart bookings in the next few months so please do get in touch to book with us from August and beyond.

Meanwhile, the Zoo2U team have been keeping busy with a little secret project which we'll be sharing over the next few days...this one's definitely worth checking out!!

Virtual Zoo2U Animal Encounters Available Now

Zoo2U online Virtual Animal Encounter

Due to the government preventing us from returning to outreach or opening our indoor Discovery Centre to visitors, we are now able to offer our sessions in a virtual capacity where the children can still benefit from an animal encounter to support their learning and have lots of fun in the process! Furthermore because we control the environment we can include animals which are not suitable for all venues such as meerkats. Please see our options below:

Virtual Animal Party - For all ages - You select from over 25 different animals! They will be fun and interactive sessions. Please note: The length of time each animal is out will depend on the number you chose!

COVID-19 Bookings Update - 18th June 2020

Zoo2U at school

We hope you are all managing through the challenging COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve really missed our visits to you and we’ll like to extend our thoughts to all who are affected by the ever-changing situation, it is truly a worrying time for us all.

We wanted to confirm we currently remain closed due to the nature of our highly interactive indoor facility and outreach services. Therefore, any visits or Discovery Centre experiences that we were due to carry out since 23rd March are presently not able to go ahead. If we haven’t been in touch to ask if you would like to reschedule, we would ask for your consideration on this. We do plan to fulfil all bookings which were unable to be run as planned.

For those of you who are have bookings coming up, we can’t fulfil these at present until the government tell us otherwise. Therefore, we would also ask you to consider rescheduling.

Over the past 3 months we have lost our entire source of income and unlike many businesses our costs have not really changed, due to animal welfare standards needing to be met. So far we’ve managed to struggle through with some government help and the generosity of the public.

In light of the above, we are launching a brand new virtual service which we hope will be of interest to you and your colleagues. Click here for more information.


Once lockdown is eased we will continue to offer our wonderful Educational Animal Workshops. We understand that there are concerns about inviting outside companies into schools and homes which is why we have been working in association with BIAZA (the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) and Cheshire East council to update our risk assessments in preparation.
