Dino Discovery Day at Colchester Zoo


Take a step back in time with our Dino Discovery Day filled with all things prehistoric, including the chance meet and greet our dinosaur friends, and it’s all included in the cost of your admission! Discover extinct species from millions of years ago, from gigantic carnivores to the graceful herbivores.*

We will also have a range of DINO-MITE activities taking place throughout the day to find out more about the most dangerous creatures that once lived.

Paying Visitors: Paying visitors are not required to pre-book tickets, however, we recommend all non-passholders to book their tickets online in advance to receive the best price on admission.
