Licence - zoo

Introduction

Any premises where animals not normally domesticated in Great Britain are kept, which are open to the public for more that 7 days in a 12 month period, require a zoo licence. For more information see Zoo Licence Legislation.

Zoo licensing procedures involve Secretary of State nominated inspectors, and further guidance should be sought from this department.
