Tropical Wings to Close

We are very sad to read this announcement today from Tropical Wings:

It is with great sadness that we will be closing our wonderful zoo forever on 3rd December. We have been on a fantastic journey with what has become a business to be very proud of, but sadly, due to ill health, the time has come for us to retire. We have not taken this decision lightly but circumstances have dictated this action.
We would like to thank everyone that has helped over the years to make our zoo the wonderful venue it has become and for your continued support during this difficult time. Over the coming months our priority will be working to find all our wonderful animals new and caring homes within the zoo community.

We would like to take this opportunity to assure all of our season ticket holders that reimbursements by post will be processed from 4th December but please bear with us as I’m sure you will all understand there is a large number to process. Please call 01245 425394 to discuss your refund.

Our customer service line will remain open for a period of time between 10am-3pm for any queries – 01245 425394.


Dennis and Rona Strong – Zoo Owners


Tropical Wings has been a wonderful place for my children to visit, both when they were tiny and even now they are older. Essex won’t be the same without this lovely attraction. I’m sure I am not alone in wishing Dennis and Rona the best of luck and good health in their retirement.

Sharing is caring!
