Meet over 720 different species of animal at ZSL London Zoo - a haven of nature in the heart of the city!
Immerse yourself in the magic of the animal kingdom and forget about the world outside, located in the north-east corner of Regent’s Park.
With fabulous interactive experiences and opportunities to get closer to the animals, the Zoo actively ‘brings down the bars’ for both kids and adults to discover more about wildlife, both at the zoo and out in the wild.
Get ready for London Zoo’s biggest and most breath-taking experience ever!
London Zoo welcomes a pride of endangered Asiatic lions to their enormous new habitat! Enter the crumbling ruin of an amphitheatre-style Lion Temple and see these majestic big cats roaming just metres away through an awe-inspiring ‘windowless view’ of their enclosure.
Land of the Lions will help to support ZSL’s international conversation efforts to protect Asiatic Lions.
Children love animals – that’s just a fact!
Animal Adventures lets kids immerse themselves in the sights, sounds, smells and experiences of life in the animal kingdom, as well as inspiring the next generation to care about our wildlife.
There are free events going on all day long, where you can get even closer to the animals, talk to their keepers and even join in feeding time!
See the Free Daily Events tab for more details.
Whatever the weather there’s loads to do at ZSL London Zoo! If the heavens have opened, you can find shelter in the many indoor exhibits and enclosures, like the Aquarium with its amazing coral reef, London’s only living rainforest (It's warm in there too!) and loads more.
Important: London Zoo will close at 5pm on the following dates: 1 June, 8 June, 15 June, 22 June, 29 June, 6 July, 13 July and 20 July 2018.
Superheroes and Villains at ZSL London Zoo will celebrate the superheroes of conservation
Saturday 26th May - Sunday 3rd June
KAPOW! ZSL London Zoo is inviting everyone to be superheroes this May half-term, with a wild new adventure for the whole family to enjoy: Superheroes and Villains.
As part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, from Saturday 26th May - Sunday 3rd June, kids will be able to dust off their capes and join ZSL’s own justice league of vets, keepers and scientists in their epic battle against three of Earth’s toughest enemies: plastic, poaching and climate change.
WHAM! Help our zookeepers defend against the Illegal Wildlife Trade by searching suitcases at our special Customs Control Centre – on the hunt for smuggled animals and the products illegally made from them.
WHOOSH! Work with ZSL’s vets to see just how much plastic in our seas is being swallowed by turtles, fish and other marine life – polluting our waters and endangering animals’ lives.
ZOOM! Join forces with ZSL’s scientists to investigate how climate change is affecting animals like African hunting dogs – by learning how to fit them with high-tech tracking collars and reading the data they collect.
MEANWHILE, BACK AT BASE… Young caped crusaders can team up with ZSL’s very own superhero Captain Z to bravely venture into the lair of his arch-nemesis Plastico, a fiendish villain made powerful by the mountains of discarded plastic being dumped into our oceans.
Dare to enter Plastico’s Lair, a dastardly den made entirely of single-use water bottles discarded in London. Step inside this plastic fortress to learn about taking the #OneLess pledge and other small but vital changes visitors can make to help save the world’s wildlife.
Once junior superheroes have finished saving the day they can spend their downtime exploring the world-famous Zoo, discovering even more about the 19,000 super-animals who call it home.
Superheroes and Villains is part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, a year-long celebration of incredible wildlife and the ZSL superheroes working to protect animals around the world.
Superheroes and Villains at ZSL London Zoo runs from Saturday 26th May – Sunday 3rd June. A great value day out, this super experience is included in Zoo entry price... BOOM!
