Founded in 1826, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international scientific, conservation and education charity whose mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.
Our mission is realised through our ground breaking science, our active conservation projects in more than 50 countries and our two zoos.
London Zoo provides a great day out with a family friendly atmosphere. Set in the heart of Regents Park, it has been entertaining visitors of all ages with a collection of over 800 hundred animals as well as some fantastic shows and interactive experiences for over 150 years.
From the classic penguin feeding time to the insightful talks held in an authentic living rainforest there really is something for everyone to enjoy. There are fun and games galore to be had in the kid’s zone including a range of special exhibits designed to be as informative as they are exciting. Children are free to explore a treetop village; a secret underground world as well as the ‘Touch Zone’ which provides a safe environment for them interacts with all of their favourite creatures.
Get closer to the animals than ever before when you ‘Meet the Monkeys’ in the biggest enclosure of its kind in Britain. Take an urban safari through the open plan area where nothing stands between you and the Bolivian blacked-capped squirrel Monkeys in their natural habitat.
There is so much to do at London Zoo you may struggle to fit it all into one day! Your ticket includes priority entry access at no extra cost giving you more time to see one of the city’s premier attractions.
