HOw to save money on a day at the zoo
I often get emailed by followers asking how to get cheap zoo tickets so I thought I’d put together a post with the latest discounts. There are lots of different ways to save money on a day at the zoo. All of the zoos that I mention in this post are all day trip-able from Bucks, Beds, Herts and Oxon, but the same discount schemes will save you money on other zoos as well.
Blue Peter Badges
If your children have earned their Blue peter badges there are hundreds of attractions all over the UK where they can now go for free. This includes London Zoo, Whipsnade Zoo, Paradise Wildlife Park. For the full list of attractions visit the Blue Peter website. It does take a bit of time for your badges to come though, and you must have your badge holders card (which takes longer still) in order to gain free entry.
They’ve just extended their trial scheme so you can now get a 45 day trial for just £1. As well as discounts for the following zoos you can also get cheap cinema tickets, discounts on meals and loads of days out. The cheap zoo tickets you can get with Kids Pass membership include:
- Up to £13 off Whipsnade Zoo
- Up to £20 off ZSL London Zoo
- Up to 30% off Woburn Safari Park
- Up to £70 off West Midlands Safari Park
- Up to 10% off Paradise Wildlife Park
- Up to 40% Bristol Zoo

Always book tickets in advance if you’re able to. The majority of places offer a discount for tickets booked online.
All discounts are correct at time of publishing. Please double check the details before booking. If you come across any discount codes please get in touch and I’ll add them to this list.
I sometimes use affiliate links if there is something that I genuinely think will be of interest and that I think is relevant to the post. I will always indiciate if a link is an affiliate link. I do earn a small commission for these, and that goes towards the running costs of the site. Any discounts mentioned may only be available for a short time so please double check prices before booking.
