What’s happened while we’ve been closed?

During our 2 week January closure we’ve been busy and our team has achieved a huge amount! We’ve tackled the big jobs that make a mess and the areas that would be difficult to work in if visitors were using them.  In no particular order, we’ve…

  • The Education buildings have now been demolished and removed, ready for new classroom and offices – the area has been fenced off but this doesn’t affect the visitors in anyway
  • Replaced some of the wooden decking on the Savannah walk way – the lower section is completed and will re-open for this Saturday
  • Replaced the old wooden trance ramp to the café
  • Redecorated shop and Experience Barn in branding colours
  • Remerchandised the gift shop
  • Catering departments have been deep cleaned
  • Carried out tree surgery to keep the site safe
  • Pressure washed paths and a bit of general TLC

Other updates from the past couple of weeks

The story about the birth of our baby Goeldi monkey went viral, with it being reported all over the world. We are happy to report both mum and baby are doing well.

The mouse deer, which arrived just before Christmas, are settling in nicely.

Our Schools Go Free in ’23 campaign is booking up quickly and our education team are looking forward to welcoming lots of school groups, some of which will be visiting Newquay Zoo for the first time. If you haven’t yet booked your school visit, there’s still time! Click here to book.
