Parking & Accessability

We have ample free parking  available for our visitors, with disabled access close to the main zoo entrance. Please follow the BCA Zoo signage once onsite.

BCA Zoo is fully wheelchair accessible although our farm area does get muddy at certain times of the year. If in doubt, please contact the team before your visit on the details below.

Directions – How to find us

Located less than a 10-minute drive from Maidenhead town centre and just off the M4 and M40, BCA Zoo is based in the Colleges incredible 400-acre campus which is easily accessible from the surrounding areas. Please click here to download a directional map.

There is clear signposting throughout the campus for Main Reception which, if you follow, will lead you to a long drive where it asks you to turn left into the College car park. This is where parking is for our Family Zoo Days, however, if you are visiting for any of our other encounters or tours, please head straight with the equestrian stables to your right. Around 200m down the road you will see BCA Zoo on your left and small car park to your right. Please note that on Family Zoo Days this car park is for disabled parking only.

Please click here to download a campus map for use once on site. If using Google Maps, input ‘BCA Zoo’ for directions to the zoo car park.

Under the current Government roadmap we are planning on reopening the week commencing the 12th of April for Zoo Tours and Meerkat Encounters. All other activities will resume from the 17th of May.

From the 12th - 18th of April we will have roadworks going on along the main drive. Please enter using the Honey Lane entrance if you have booked a date during that period. For directions click here.
