Five Sisters Zoo Information

Five Sisters Zoo has teamed up with Signpost to offer our members something special – from now until Christmas, every evening (except 15th December) you can visit the zoo’s special Illuminations nights for half price. We would like to invite you to experience the Zoo at night as you’ve never seen it before…. thousands of lights illuminating enclosures, trees and plants creating what we believe to be a truly magical experience.

To take advantage of this special offer, please follow the procedure below. There is a limit to the number of visitors per night, so don’t delay, book today!

Please note:
This offer is only available to existing members of Signpost
Half-price offer applies to the first two adults and two children (age 3 to 15) – any other people will pay full price (under 3s go free)
Cost is £5 per adult, and £2.50 per child (full price £10 & £5)
Tickets include entry to the Zoo, to the Reptile House, and one free ‘go’ on a kiddie ride for each child (all other rides £1).
Payment can be made by credit or debit card
Tickets can only be used on the day for which they were booked
Procedure:
Tickets must be booked and paid for at least one day in advance by calling the Zoo office Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm on 01506 870000
Bookings for Saturday or Sunday must be made by 5pm on Thursday
Be prepared to give your name, address, email and date of visit
The zoo will contact Signpost to check Signpost membership details
Signpost will send an email confirmation to you (sorry, no postal confirmations) when valid booking information is received from the Zoo.
The email confirmation contains important additional information, and must be taken to the Zoo as proof of purchase on the night.
Additional information:

Times : From 6pm to 9.30pm each night (excluding Dec 15th).
Parking: the main car park inside the entrance to the Zoo is free, there is also an overflow car park. If the overflow car park is in operation, staff will direct you accordingly.
Accessibility : the Zoo is mainly on the flat, the main paths either have mono block or concrete.
Weather : Please note that this event is outside and visitors should dress accordingly for all weathers. There are few areas to shelter and some paths may be slightly muddy. Sturdy footwear and warm/waterproof clothing is advisable.
General Information : Hot food outlets will be open to purchase light refreshments and the Gift Shop will be open. Unfortunately no dogs, other than guide dogs are permitted in the Zoo. Smoking is only permitted in the designated area of the car park. There will be a limited number of guided tours available on the night. Please note that many of the lights will be flashing. You are welcome to take pictures whilst wandering round the Zoo. Each child is entitled to 1 free shot on a kiddie ride. Other rides are charged at £1.00 per shot.
Cancellation : Inevitably bad weather can affect any open-air event. No refunds will be offered if the weather is inclement but the event is safe to go ahead. If the event is cancelled due to extreme weather, tickets will be refunded within 7 working days and you will be contacted by email with confirmation or offered an alternative night. Cancellation of an evening will be confirmed via facebook, twitter and the Five Sisters Zoo website due to extreme weather or other conditions outwith the Zoo’s control.
Santa : Whilst Santa’s Grotto and reindeer will be in the Zoo grounds, Santa will only be visiting the Zoo during the day at weekends in December so visits to Santa will only be possible then.

We hope you enjoy this special event – please share your pictures or comments with us.

Best wishes,

the Signpost staff
