How to book an educational visit

Contact our education team today to discuss which learning session is most suitable for your class.

All education services must be booked in advance and as the visits are very popular we recommend booking as far in advance as possible to help us  accommodate your selected date.

Once you have completed a booking form and your selected dates and times have been confirmed, the education team will send pre-visit information to help make your session as straightforward as possible. Your booking is not confirmed until you have received a booking confirmation from Belfast Zoo.

We advise that the final amount payable is written onto the cheque when you arrive at Belfast Zoo on the date of your visit to ensure accurate payment information. If the cheque displays a different amount from the final payable amount, the cheque will not be accepted.

You can pay in cash on the day of your group visit.

By card

You can pay by debit or credit card in advance or on the day of your visit.

Some groups may have to inform us at least six weeks in advance of your visit if you wish to be invoiced. This is subject to completion of relevant documentation and financial approval by Belfast City Council.
