A touch of nostalgia comes to the Isle of Wight Zoo

The Zoo has welcomed a touch of nostalgia this weekend with the static display of a number of restored military vehicles on site

Each of the vehicles has its own incredible story to tell ,so why not join us at the Isle of Wight Zoo over the weekend to meet up with the Isle of Wight Military Vehicle Group and hear about the background of these lovingly restored vehicles , of course with the zoo being home to WWII  P.LU.T.O ( pipeline under the Ocean ) this is a unique chance to witness how the zoo site may have once looked in its former role .

Come and meet the Meerkats !!!


The Isle of Wight Zoo is pleased to announce that our brand new daily Meerkat encounters are now available at " Suricata Lodge " our stunning new African style Kalahari Meerkat experience area.

If you fancy the opportunity to be used as a human termite mound by our friendly mob of Meerkats then why not treat yourself or your children to an encounter in our specially designed undercover area? Tickets are sold on the day on a first-come-first-served basis .
