It’s officially autumn and we’ve reverted to reduced opening hours.

Visitors will now be able to gain entry to DZG from 10am until 3pm, with the site closing 90 minutes later.

Zoo Manager Matt Lewis, said: “At this time of year it drops dusk quite quickly out on site, so we always make sure all the animals are in for the night by 5pm.

“However the entrance may remain open until 4pm during weekends for the next few weeks if the weather is dry, so visitors will still have an extra hour to see their favourite animal.”

The shorter hours will remain in place until Easter.
