ZSL Whipsnade Zoo Tickets - Skip The Line

Get ready for animal adventures of epic proportions at the UK’s biggest zoo!

ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is home to more than 2,500 animals - many of which are endangered – with specially-designed enclosures that are carefully created to imitate their natural environments.

Get closer than you imagined to the zoo’s most exciting animals with interactive and immersive habitats including Cheetah Rock, In with the Lemurs, Rhinos of Nepal and the “Chimpnasium”.

You might even encounter some species roaming freely around the grounds, like the Patagonian mara, Chinese water deer, wallabies and more!

Some of Whipsnade Zoo’s most exciting interactive exhibits include:

Lions of the Serengeti

A truly unforgettable experience that gives you unique views of Whipsnade’s pride of African lions.

Chimpnasium

The chimps have a wonderful enclosure including an extensive indoor gymnasium so they can swing to their hearts' content!

Passage Through Asia

A large rolling paddock with no barriers between you and the animals; home to Bactrian camels, yak, Pere David's deer and more.

Butterfly House

You’ll be surrounded by hundreds of colourful butterflies from around the world. In one of the largest butterfly biomes of any UK zoo.

Kids’ Hullabazoo Farm

Children will have the time of their lives meeting a whole host of farmyard friends in this up-close adventure.

Explore ZSL Whipsnade Zoo by car!

As the zoo is so large, visitors are allowed to bring their cars into the large drive-through area, ‘Passage through Asia’.

There is also a free Safari Bus around the zoo, which stops off at all the main exhibits.

Another fun way to see the animals is on The Jumbo Express, the steam trains which weave their way through the territories of some of the zoo’s most popular animals, like the elephants, rhinos and camels.

Until 2nd September 2018 enrol in Superhero training at ZSL's Superhero Academy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great day out for all the family. Had a great day with my daughter and grandson. He loved the farm with the goats and we liked the train ride, shame you have to pay so much to go on it though. The bird displays were fun and of course the seal show is a must to see. The soft play area was a nice break for nannas feet, nice cold drink would have been good too. The shop is well stocked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Longed for trip We bought the ticket for ourselves and three grandchildren and a good day was had by all. HOWEVER, WHY OH WHY HAVE YOU PERMITTED CHILDREN'S SCOOTERS TO ENTER THE ZOO!! The idea of a day at the zoo is surely to see and watch the animals which Whipsnade does superbly NOT for children to race around on their scooters and everyone else having to look out for them. Scooters should be in the park or in safe places for children to play. The majority of children showed little or no interest in the animals but racing around and at times causing mayhem. What were some parents doing - chatting among themselves and were oblivious to their children. We did have a lovely day and the children were interested in all there was to see. Would we go again - Yes, of course, but we would be very aware if you continue to permit scooters. Young at heart grandparents

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Memories Celebrated my 60th birthday with children and grandchildren. Renewing memories of younger years. Thanks to lovely staff at gate she gave me membership rates to bring cars in, when she saw my 'birthday boy' badge. Lovely surprise. I put the discount to a peacock for Millie-Rose my 5 yr old granddaughter. What a special day!! Thank you Whipsnade and your generosity when I appreciate money is tight

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive day out Took two grandchilden to the zoo. Not so many animals as I remember when I was younger & the cost of taking the car in at £20 prohibitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant day out with the grandchildren We purchased tickets on line for ourselves and our grandchildren and their parents. The arrival arrangements are much better: easier parking by monitors and the gate entrance was much quicker and far better arranged than on previous occasions we have visited. The pens, cages and parkland for species are also improving and, when the sea lions have been upgraded, all the animals will be decently housed.
