Parents may well be trying to find fun and cheap days out for the kids.
But they don’t need to look too far.
London Zoo is helping with mega-cheap tickets to help more people get closer to wildlife on a day out.
£3 London Zoo tickets
London Zoo is offering tickets from £3 as part of their Community Access Scheme to allow more families to have a magical day out.
The cheaper Super Saver tickets are priced at £26.50 usually, so this is a mammoth saving!!
You’ll be able to spot Critically Endangered Sumatran tiger cubs, Western lowland gorillas, Humboldt penguins and more than 14,000 other animals at their iconic conservation zoo.
You must pre-book online for up to 6 people (under 3s go free).
However, if you can afford to make a small voluntary donation for the tickets (even 50p or £1), it would be gratefully received by the zoo, which is a charity.
Tickets must be pre-booked so they can allocate spaces flexibly and plan overall visitor numbers.
You can get the lower price through the Community Access Scheme if you receive Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support or Jobseeker’s Allowance.
You will have to take a proof of benefits letter with you to the gate when you ask for the tickets (this can be electronic).
The £3 ticket price is for children wth the ticket price at £5 for adults, although those under 3s go free.
While there are places to get food on-site at one of their restaurants or cafes, you’re more than welcome to take your own picnic and find a spot in their 36-acre space in the middle of London.
You can check the full offer details at www.zsl.org/CAS.
ZSL’s Community & Learning Manager said:
“As London’s zoo, we want to do what we can to help everyone enjoy a great day out exploring nature – so from now until the end of March we’re offering tickets for just £3 to eligible families on low incomes.
“While as a conservation charity we’re facing tough times ourselves, we know that people across the country are really feeling the pinch during the cost-of-living crisis – so we’re pleased to be able to help more people get closer to wildlife.
“By offering these discounted tickets through our Community Access Scheme, people can spend a magical day spotting Critically Endangered Sumatran tiger cubs, Western lowland gorillas, Humboldt penguins and more than 14,000 other animals at London’s iconic conservation zoo.”
(Please note, when this deal was first released, London Zoo asked for tickets to be purchased at the gate, but this has changed, and they MUST be booked in advance).
