ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is the largest in the UK with 3,300 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. You’ll even be able to feed them a few tasty leaves!
Enjoy daily animal shows and talks so your little explorers can learn all about the locals and their habitats. They can be a Keeper for a Day or experience the must-not-miss BedBUGS Sleepover! Seven to eleven year olds can explore the zoo by torchlight, enjoy some storytelling and spend the night amongst creepy crawlies in the Bug House.
