DUDLEY Zoo and Castle is offering Easter holiday guests a free return visit.

All full-paying visitors to the Castle Hill attraction, visiting from now up until Sunday April 7, will be given a voucher for a free day out at the zoo, which is valid until July 31.

Throughout the school holidays, the zoo is celebrating an ‘Eggsplosion of Colour’, as it highlights some of its 200 species who use colour to their advantage, including Zeus the Southern Cassowary.

As well as a packed programme of daily educational talks, there’s the chance for little ones to follow a trail of Easter bunny’s paw prints around the 40-acre site and hunt out vibrant eggs and take part in seasonal arts and crafts.

In the Discovery Centre visitors can find out more about a variety of colourful critters in a pop-up bug exhibit.

Zoo manager, Matt Lewis, said: “We’ve got lots of fun for all the family this Easter and our cracking free return offer for all full-paying visitors allows them to come back and enjoy another day out at the zoo for free over the next few months.

“And as we’ve just reverted to our summer hours, the attraction is now open for longer each day, allowing visitors to spend more time at the zoo to see their favourite animals.”

To claim the complimentary visit, an original receipt from the Easter holiday day out and the completed voucher must be produced on re-entry.
