Colchester Zoo has been named the most popular wildlife attraction in the UK in a recent survey by Which? the magazine that publishes expert, unbiased information for consumers.

Their survey of over 3,000 consumers placed Colchester Zoo as “king of the animal parks when it comes to satisfied visitors. The five stars it gets for the range and quality of its facilities, and the engagement and entertainment offered perhaps reflect its 260 species (including Komodo dragons, leopards and sun bears), 50 daily displays, and four adventure play areas” said the magazine. The zoo also scored 4 out of 5 stars for Value for money and for its Food and drink.

Zoological Director, Anthony Tropeano commented, “We are obviously delighted to have received the seal of approval from such a well respected publication and to know that our visitors leave the park satisfied. We always aim to exceed our customers’ expectations and will work even harder to ensure that we achieve even higher scores in the future.”
