Colchester Zoo Magical Light Illuminations Zebras


Join us at Colchester Zoo this Christmas and immerse yourself in the wonderful festive atmosphere!

Enjoy festive fun during your day out at Colchester Zoo as well as the chance to see our Magical Animal Illuminations as we remain open for the early evening. There are plenty of festive fun activities to join in with, including Spot Santa- look out for Santa around the zoo as he helps out the Animal Care Team, hop aboard the Christmas Road Train and listen to your favourite festive songs, journey through the enchanted woodland to meet fairies and pixies, see if you can find Rudolph and his friends at Santa's Reindeer Stable and take part in some Christmas crafts (small fee applies)

It's an action packed day out!

Please be aware that all activities, dates and times are subject to change.
