No other dogs are permitted. Please do not leave dogs in the car, dogs left in hot cars will be reported to the police.

Do you have any job opportunities available?
All jobs are posted on our website, please check the job section. Unfortunately we cannot file CV's so please only apply when a job is advertised.
Do you offer donation tickets for charities?
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm receives an overwhelming number of donation requests each month from a great number of worthy causes; therefore we have to carefully monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to other organisations for fundraising events. As a major visitor attraction situated near Bristol, we want to support our local community as much as possible. As a result tickets will be prioritised to either registered charities or to schools and community groups in the BS, BA, NP, GL, TA and CF postcodes.
Due to the rising postal charges and the huge demand for donations, we ask if you could please send a brief covering letter together with a stamped addressed envelope headed 'Donation Requests'.
Only one set of tickets will be allocated to successful organisations in any twelve month period. All applications will be considered using the above criteria by the last Friday of every month. Successful requests will be sent back by post at the beginning of each month.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to send any donations without a stamped addressed envelope. We wish you every success with your fundraising event.
Can I hire a wheelchair?
Yes we have wheelchairs available to hire. If you would like to hire one, please email with the date you would like visit firstname.lastname@example.org
Following government guidelines, the zoo reopened on 12 April 2021. Please read a copy of our full Covid guidelines below.
