  • Visit the world’s oldest scientific zoo. Dating back to 1828, it now hosts over 750 species, and you’ll find over 17,000 animals to admire and ogle
  • Visit Gorilla Kingdom and see Kumbuka and his family of silverback gorillas at close quarters. They have their own island, gym, and African rainforest (seriously!)
  • Play superhero games and learn about the animal kingdom's superheroes in the Superhero Takeover (30 March - 15 April 2018 only)

London Zoo is perhaps the most famous zoo in the whole world. Built by Victorian gentlemen with names like Sir Stamford Raffles and Decimus Burton, it’s been an important part of London life for almost 200 years. Today you’ll be able to take in over 750 species of animals while walking through its historic buildings and grounds.

The London Zoo has undergone a transformation in the past few years. From its Victorian-era 'animal park' origins, it's now a conservation-minded institution that puts animals and education first.

Charismatic lowland gorillas, prehistoric Komodo dragons, and Galapagos turtles, mighty lions and tigers... all the big-ticket creatures are on display here. But that's not all, Reptile House, _Butterfly Paradise, the Aquarium, Penguin Beach_ and more will round out your day with plenty of animal sightings. If the In With The Spiders exhibit still creeps you out, visit the two Pygmy Hippos instead. Everyone agrees that Thug and Nicky are delightful.

Superhero Takeover at ZSL London Zoo

Friday 30 March - Sunday 15 April 2018

The world of creatures and critters is super enough, but did you know there are real life super heroes out there in the animal kingdom, complete with powers to amaze you? Take this self-guided adventure for the whole family and get involved!

Learn why lemurs let off stink bombs, and how the weird axolotl regrows its own limbs! Fade into the background with a tiger’s camouflage, test your strength opposite the planet's strongest species – the leafcutter ant, and dress up with Capes of Confusion to hide from predators. If you get peckish, you can also Snag a Snack by catching sticky insects in your very own web! Or you can get an ice-cream, whatever floats your super-boat.

Insider tip

The gorilla colony was blessed with a new addition in 2014, a baby girl named Alika (which means beautiful). She joins the other two females in the group, and the family continues to thrive

Pretty cold today thus not many animals were out. Pick fine weather days for visit

It was really good seeing all the animals didn't get the full experience as I went on a snowy day. Would definitely recommend for a family trip on a sunny day.

it was sick
Mar 18, 2018
it was very cold, and perhaps not surprizingly many of the animals had hidden themselves away, and therefore our grandchildren’s excitement wore off fairly quickly.

We booked fast track tickets online in the morning and went to London Zoo the same morning. We walked from Euston station to ZSL using Mobile phone GPS: the zoo is not far from the station at all and finding it was simple :)
We were one of the first to arrive and so we walked in as soon as it opened. It was a little cold but we saw soooo many animals! Including the Butterfly section which is just beautiful every time I visit. We were never bored! So many different animals to see! They have an animal for everyone. Whether you like axalotls or zebras, lions or giraffes. I think going that bit earlier was a good idea because we got to see certain animals on our own before more people arrived. We ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely/not expensive either. All in all SUCH a fab day :) will definitly be going back! Despite being worried I’d HATE it after reading bad reviews I loved it so much and so did my partner :)

Enjoyable however, in a lot of cases it was like playing hide and seek, trying to spot the exhibits.No elephants?
