The Zoo is more than 170 years old and contains many old buildings, 12 of which are listed. However, most of the Zoo is accessible for wheelchair users and those with walking difficulties.
Land of the Lions is wheelchair friendly and has a lift available for visitors to use.
Tiger Territory is wheelchair friendly and has a lift available for visitors to access the higher viewing platform.
The historic Lubetkin penguin pool (listed Grade 1) has limited viewing for wheelchair users and very small children.
The paths are generally tarmac and there is level or ramped access to most buildings. We should also add that the slopes leading to the two tunnels in the Zoo are rather steep.
