Tickets for London Zoo
750 species and over 17,000 animals in the world’s oldest scientific zoo

- 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!)
- With talks and feeding sessions throughout the day, there's plenty of opportunities to really get to know the inhabitants here!
There are real-life superheroes out there in the animal kingdom. Take this self-guided adventure for the whole family and see how you measure up!
Learn why lemurs let off stink bombs, and how the bizarre 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 in Capes of Confusion to hide from predators. If you get peckish, you can also Snag a Snack by catching insects in your very own sticky web! Or you can get an ice-cream, whatever floats your super-boat.
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, the Aquarium, 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.

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.
I was amazed with the butterflies!!!!
