Emergency Services workers gain free entry to London Zoo
London Zoo is providing free Zoo entry to all emergency services staff this weekend (9th/10th September 2006).
Following the huge success of last year’s emergency services day - held to acknowledge the hard work of emergency staff in the wake of the 7/7 tube bombings - London Zoo would like to thank the dedicated staff working in police, fire and ambulance departments again this year for their commitment to the London community.
A great opportunity to take a break from the hectic London streets, London Zoo provides visitors with a chance to get back to nature with some of London Zoo’s new exhibits.
London Zoo’s new immersive exhibit ‘Into Africa’ offers views of the African savannah and eye-to-eye interaction with giraffes, Dawn and Crackers, on a purpose built platform. Walk through Butterfly Paradise where butterflies fly free and the tropics are brought to central London. Learn about the Zoological Society of London’s conservation work while meandering through this progressive Zoo.
If you work for the police, fire brigade or ambulance services and have a warrant or service ID card then you can present this at the gate on either Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th September and gain free entry to the Zoo.
Free entry is for the card holder only.
