Watch live feedings, walk through Butterfly Paradise and "Meet the Monkeys" at London Zoo; a great family day out right in the centre of Regent's Park

ZSL London Zoo has been educating and inspiring visitors since opening to the public in 1847. With over 750 incredible species, exciting and innovative exhibits it’s a great day out in the capital for all ages.

In the spring of 2016, Land of the Lions will be coming to ZSL London Zoo, providing state-of-the-art facilities for a breeding group of endangered Asiatic lions, of which only 400 remain in the wild. Giving millions of people the chance to get up-close to the big cats, visitors to Land of the Lions will be able to see just how closely humans and lions live in the Gir Forest, with tantalising glimpses of the lions’ habitat appearing throughout a bustling Indian ‘village’.

Set in leafy Regent's Park amid heritage-listed buildings and beautiful gardens, ZSL London Zoo is an oasis in the heart of the capital. With over 750 amazing animal species to discover, as well as live shows and fantastic, immersive exhibits, this is an unmissable attraction.

Visitors can go In with the Spiders in ZSL London Zoo’s BUGS exhibit, and experience Europe’s only walk through spider enclosure.  Head down to England’s largest penguin pool at Penguin Beach and watch the Humboldt penguins dive, swim, frolic and feed, or step Into Africa and observe the elegance and grace of the giraffes from the viewing platform.

Move through lush forested pathways when Gorilla Kingdom brings the African rainforest to the heart of London. And younger visitors can explore Animal Adventure – home to meerkats, llamas and aardvarks in an immersive animal experience, designed for children, by children.

MAKES THE WHOLE TRIP EASIER Not only do you have your admission card in hand, but you have an excellent guide to London and its environs. Approaching long lines, you can usually go right to the front at an attraction. Not only that, but because you have your admission, you'll find yourself visiting wonderful attractions that you might not otherwise have ventured to find.
