Welcome to ZSL London Zoo - the world’s oldest scientific zoo! With 712 species and over 20,000 animals, it's an expansive and highly interactive dive into the wild.

Come face to face with majestic Asiatic Lions at the state-of-the-art facility Land of the Lions, and get eye-to-eye with the world's tallest mammal from the giraffe viewing platform. Make sure you stop by the Animal Adventure zone! Designed to feature low barriers, it allows little animal lovers to come up-close with porcupines, mongooses and other curious animals. Not to mention, there’s a play zone and water play area, as well! 

If your kids love all things creepy and crawly, take them to the BUGS exhibit or on a trip through Europe’s only walk through spider enclosure! For some that might sound like a special form of torture... If so lean towards Penguin Beach where Humbolt penguins dip, dive and delight everyone with their antics.

Getting to London zoo on the weekend was not as busy as we thought, we headed out for one o'clock and get there at two thirty Are only mistake was to leave at one as there was so much to do we did t get to see all the animals The price was different to what it said on the website and paid £29 I also purchased a book that included the map of the zoo. Was very surprising there was a lot of animals missing but still very excited and extremely satisfied with what we had paid for
