A statement read on their facebook page “Due to the heavy snow the zoo will be closed today (Tuesday 27 February).

“Anyone who has pre-booked tickets for today will automatically receive a full refund.

“We advise that you keep hold of your ticket or confirmation email as it will also remain valid for a free visit on a date of your choice during 2018”.

However, this adorable video at the top of the page shows that the animals absolutely loved the snow that completely changed their landscape for the day.

A double weather warning for more snow and wind has also been issued by the Met Office for Friday when even more bad weather is expected.
