A popular Hertfordshire zoo near Welwyn Hatfield has confirmed its reopening plans.

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's roadmap announcement last Monday, Paradise Wildlife Park is set to open its doors again from Monday, April 12.

Provided certain government requirements are met, that is the date from which Step 2 lockdown restrictions will be eased, with outdoor attractions such as zoos, theme parks and drive-in cinemas allowed to open again to the public.  

Announcing the reopening update on its Instagram feed, PWP posted: "From April 12th, we’re pleased to announce that we will be reopening Paradise Wildlife Park, subject to COVID restrictions."

Tickets have gone on sale again from the Broxbourne-based wildlife park's website.
