Swan Boats will be open as normal, although we expect to see higher than average numbers of people queuing. Please remember to respect social distancing throughout your visit! 

Is the Mammoth Play Ark open?

The Mammoth Play Ark is now open, with all new COVID secure precautions in place.

Places are limited to maintain social distancing and meet government guidelines, so booking is essential and you'll have 20 minutes of playtime. Tickets are only valid when purchased along with an admission ticket for the same date. 

A nominal ticket fee of £2 per child is payable to ensure visitors commit to their booking and to ensure the venue does not exceed the capacity limit (set by government guidelines). 

There is more information on the COVID secure precautions and on booking tickets here.

My payment won't go through

If you are paying with a Nationwide card, we are in the process of trying to resolve an issue with payments being declined by Nationwide. We are waiting for the technical team at Nationwide Bank PLC to investigate why they decline some card transactions. It would appear that the 3DS security authentication (new standard in security used to verify purchases) is causing an error in the process and they decline the payment, regardless of funds in the account.

If you aren't able to use an alternative bank or credit card please contact us on 01525 290407 or by email on info@woburnsafari.co.uk

Do I have to wear a face covering?

Read the full face covering policy for more details on our safety and precautions page. You MUST wear a face covering inside any indoor area of the park, including toilets, Rainbow Landing, Sea Lion Cove and all restaurants or cafes. 

We strongly advise you bring your own face covering, as there is only limited supply available to purchase in the gift shop.
