Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm Wins Inclusivity & Accessibility Awards!
It’s always welcome news to hear of businesses and attractions taking steps to become more inclusive and make their sites more accessible for disabled people.
And if you’re looking for your next fun day out, a trip to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm could be on the agenda, as the business has just taken home the gold in this year’s Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards for accessible and inclusive tourism.
The team have been working hard behind the scenes to make the zoo accessible for all, with a Changing Places toilet recently installed, complete with a hoist and changing bed, as well as making improvements to the car park so it’s more accessible for wheelchair users.
In addition, the staff members have also been taking training courses in autism, mental health awareness and British Sign Language.
Managing director Larry Bush commented on the news, saying: “We are absolutely thrilled to have received these awards, which highlight the dedication of our talented and hard-working team. It’s a huge honour to be recognised for our progress as a green tourist attraction and an inclusive and accessible zoo.”
The site is now open seven days a week but you have to book your tickets online, unless you’re a member, in which case you don’t need to pre-book. The zoo is currently celebrating all the signs of spring, with a new trail to help you explore the various parts of the park and discover all the baby animals.
You’ll see all sorts of flora and fauna on your way round, everything from Jersey cows and donkeys to geese, llamas, Tamworth pigs, Shetland ponies and alpacas!
