We are working to ensure access for everyone and although Noah's Ark is built on a working farm, most areas are wheelchair accessible. We are now partnered with Bristol's Mobility Centre and now have a limited number of wheelchairs available to hire for free. We also have mobility scooters for available for a £10 hire charge. Please contact us if you wish to book one in advance!
Noah's Ark is working on a long term 'Ark for All' plan, the first stage of which has been completed and was opened on 25th July by Paralympian Andy Lewis. The new facilities include a Changing Places toilet, complete with hoist and changing bed, accessible play equipment including a wheelchair accessible roundabout and child-friendly accessible signage.
The Ark Arena has a hearing Induction Loop installed. We have a loud, clear PA system and make use of visual aids including highlighted steps, high contrast signs and painted picnic tables.
We are working alongside our visitors to provide a more accessible zoo, we would love to hear your feedback about how we could make your visit easier.
Please contact us to book a wheelchair, to make enquiries about your visit or to give us feedback.

Unfortunately no dogs or pets are allowed on site (including in the car park) except for Assistance Dogs. Assistance dogs are welcome and water can be provided upon request.
Noah's Ark is delighted to have won 'Access for All' at the Bristol Tourism and Hospitality Awards 2012.
