The animals at London Zoo love getting in the Christmas spirit. It's because every year, London's world-famous zoo hosts a trough-load of seasonal activities for you to come and enjoy, including craft workshops and festive stalls.
The kids can even become Keepers' Little Helpers for the day, preparing seasonal surprises for the animals. Watch them being fed your hand-made treats at 12 special Christmas talks around the zoo. This is all included in your entry ticket; call it a gift from ZSL!
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.
ZSL 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, Penguin Beach and more will round out your day with plenty of animal sightings.
If the In With The Spiders exhibit creeps you out, visit the two Pygmy Hippos instead. Everyone agrees that Thug and Nicky are delightful. And speaking of delightful, don't miss the Animal Adventure zone, where young visitors can learn about llamas, meerkats and more – as well as spend some quality time in the play area!
- Cancellations are possible up to 24 hours before your visit date

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.
