ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is the largest in the UK with 3,800 unique creatures and 600 acres of stunning scenery. Spend a day discovering new breeds you’ve never even heard of before!

Who to visit first? Take a stroll with the elephants on their daily walk, marvel as the cheetahs speed past and greet the rhinos in their paddock. A fantastic way to travel through wild animal territory is by taking a ride on the Jumbo Express Steam Train. Then get an up close introduction with the world’s tallest mammal - the giraffe - on a specially built viewing platform.

Enjoy daily animal shows and talks so your little explorers can learn all about the locals and their habitats. They can take a seat at the table during a Lemur Breakfast! If not cereal and toast, what do these ring tailed lovelies eat first thing? Find out with an early morning visit.
