Dartmoor Zoo expresses its deep sadness and grief at the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen was an extraordinary figure and we want to pay our profound and utmost respects at this sad time.
Her Majesty will be remembered fondly as an animal lover and a fantastic advocate for the work of zoos and aquariums to save species and create a better world. She enjoyed a lifetime of visits to zoos, from memorable times as a Princess meeting giant pandas to meeting elephants as Queen.
As a sign of respect, Dartmoor Zoo will be shut tomorrow (Friday 09 September) to the public.
If you have already booked tickets, our team will be in touch with you as soon as possible to reschedule your visit.️
