Noah's Ark Zoo Farm has re-opened, subject to Government restrictions. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates and how to book.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is the home of the big zoo animals including African Elephants, White Rhinos, Giraffes, Lions, Giant Anteater and Spectacled Bears. You’ll be amazed at the variety of nature you’ll see with over 100 species of animals, set in 100 acres of Somerset countryside. They are now open 7 days a week.

To protect visitors, staff and animals, they have made some changes to assist with social distancing, which are listed in full on the website.  Following Step 3 guidance, they are allowing groups of up to 30 people outside with social distancing between household bubbles and groups of up to 6 or 2 households in indoor areas, again with social distancing between households.

If you would like to pack a picnic, that’s fine but they ask you to bring this into the zoo when you enter to avoid re-entering the zoo.  Picnic tables will be available throughout the site.
