Nature, animals & parks
Jersey Zoo began as the first ever conservation-themed zoo. Over 60 years later, Gerald Durrell’s animal haven is the natural place to discover some of the world’s most incredible creatures. Whether you’re after fun, tranquillity, knowledge or a place to soak up the sunshine, this beautiful 32-acre park has it all.
Price: £14 - £18
This beautiful 32-acre park with valleys, woodland and some of the world’s rarest animals is the perfect chance to experience ‘the jewel in Jersey’s crown’. Relax and stay a while or see the best bits in under two hours. The zoo is situated four miles north of St. Helier, in the parish of Trinity. You can reach the zoo by car on the B31 or by public bus.
We are open all year round.
