Zoo set for summer

The Isle of Wight Zoo is preparing to adopt its summer hours from February 15th, with the venue open from 10am until 4pm every day, allowing for more time to see the many animalistic delights within its walls.

Currently, the institute's opening times are from 11am until 3pm only, so those who want to enjoy a really wild experience have only four hours to do so thanks to the limited light in the winter.

Visiting the zoo, you will find plenty of opportunities to meet a plethora of exotic animals, from lions and tigers to spider monkeys and lemurs.

The venue is also bringing back its vastly popular Be A Zookeeper for a Day treats, which allow children and adults alike to actually enter the cages and care for the creatures as part of a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Entry prices are currently £6.50 for an adult and £3.50 for a child while infants enter for free, although these may rise after April 1st.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801685694-ADNFCR
