  And we’ve seen one of our best Aprils for decades with an amazing 39,000 visitors through the gates in the past 30 days.   CEO Peter Suddock said: “It’s been an incredible period and one of our best Easters for years with record numbers of 4,266 on Good Friday and 27,000 throughout the 10-day holiday break.  

“We are delighted with the numbers and believe it’s due to continual investment across site, a boost in the animal collection, daily interactive social media campaigns and a brilliant and committed workforce, plus fantastic supporters, which all combine to make for a great day out.”

He added: “I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support – we’re all looking forward to a fabulous season.”

Visitor figures for Jan-Apr inclusive come in at 73,008 compared to 51,499 for the same period in 2013.
