    Great place to visit. Animals all look so well looked after and lovely to be able to see so much. Would recommend but leave plenty of time.

    One of the best zoos in UK. Compact enough to walk around but good space for animals. Great day out for all, not that you'll see everything in one day! Gold card is great value for multiple visits.

    Excellent zoo. Great for a family day out. Loads of play areas to keep kids entertained when they seen enough animals.

    We went on a hot summers day in the school holidays. Busy but didn't detract from enjoyment. Between 16:00-18:00 was quiet and very pleasant. Seemed like more small animals ventured out too.

    Nice day out with kids. Food obviously expensive. But the animals are kept in a good way. They really try and make their life at the zoo interesting and varied.

    Wonderful zoo! Always so much to see and constantly improving. Admissions money is mainly reinvested into the zoo. Definitely worth a visit.

    To expand on someone else's comment, I found a total lack of voice or data coverage on the Three network across the majority of the grounds.

    Such a beautiful zoo & so well looked after.

    The best part was the train ride thru the park and the monkeys. We went with Abbeywood Nursury by coach on a hot summer day. Great time!

    would be wise to bring your own food for a picnic; i found the food they sell too expensive and not very tasty

    Is it morally right to imprison innocent wild animals for our amusement? I don't think so.

    Great place but it's well worth investing in a gold card if you plan to go a few times a year otherwise works out very expensive! Wouldn't recommend if you are not good with steep hills and long walks

    A super day out for all the family. The place is geared up for kids with a great play area and lots to keep them busy. Go off-seson, its much quieter then. A yearly ticket is value for money.

    The gold card also gives you free access to Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands.

    Use your Gold Card to claim a free visit to the Christmas Grotto, that is if you are a child ...

    A gold card is a sound investment for Colchester Zoo. My favourites are the penguins.

    Bring cash - only one cash machine in the ticket foyer and many of the food outlets don't accept cards. Cash machine also wouldn't work for me.

    Get a gold card, at just over the price of 2 visits they are worth every penny. You can also reclaim the price of your entrance fee. They change the way you use the zoo.
