School groups are able to pre-book packed lunches to be collected at the zoo

You can choose to either:

  • Book our indoor, staffed, school lunchroom to which we can have your lunches delivered ready and waiting for you at your chosen lunch time. The lunchroom has three areas which can take up to 32 students in each and is available in 30 minute slots at 11.00am, 11.45am, 12.30pm or 1.15pm. There is stair access and ramp access to the lunchroom.


  • You could pick up the lunch bags from our collection point ‘The Terrace Restaurant’, conveniently placed in the centre of the zoo, where you can take them to one of our many covered and uncovered picnic areas.

Please note:

Lunches need to be pre-booked, and paid for, at least 3 days in advance of your visit.  Lunch collection points cannot be changed on the day.
