London Zoo Standard Entry Ticket
From US$27.15
Experience the thrill and spectacle of the wild kingdom right in the middle of London. Head to ZSL London Zoo — a favorite attraction of Charles Darwin –– with this entry ticket, and opt to upgrade to a skip-the-line from February to October. Spend hours exploring the vibrant habitat displays like Penguin Beach, Gorilla Kingdom, and Tiger Territory. Visit more than 20 themed animal enclosures and catch a live talk or feeding.
What to Expect
With your pass to the ZSL London Zoo, enjoy access to this world-class site that sees over one million visitors per year. With more than 20 unique habitats and 800 species of animals to view, as well as a schedule of exciting animal-themed activities throughout the day, there’s a fun attraction for every visitor.
Just inside the entrance, you can see acclaimed Gorilla Kingdom exhibit. Observe the gorillas and monkeys eating, playing, and interacting in a lush simulated rainforest. Continue on the Tiger Territory, a recently updated habitat that mimics the natural environment of the Sumatran tiger.
Crossing over into Africa, see giraffes, African hunting dogs, and zebra from the elevated viewing platform. Don’t miss the slow and sinister komodo dragon in its lair or the giant Galapagos tortoise, the giant species hailing from the islands where Darwin researched his theory of evolution. Darwin enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Blackburn Pavilion to hear more about the finches used in the ground-breaking study by Darwin and John Gould.
Whatever route you take, carve out some quality time for Penguin Beach. Home to around 200 Macaroni and Humboldt penguins, this vibrant exhibit includes a pool with underwater viewing areas and a demonstration area to view live feedings. Opt to upgrade to a skip-the-line ticket from February to October.

Animals all well cared for and most in spacious enclosures

Went here for Sunday day out with friends. Arrived at 10am and didn't leave till 4pm when it closed and even then I don't think we saw everything. Animals all looked well cared for and it has changed greatly since I went several years ago....More

Not too impressed

Not the best zoo experience in my life. I wish it was free, 25 GBP is a little steep for an average quality zoo. The zoo area itself is very large, so prepare to walk all day long to see everything. Reptile house; Average experience,...More

Decent day out

Visited last week on a freezing cold day, a lot of the animals were nowhere to be seen, keeping warm somewhere presumably and I didn’t blame them one bit! Still plenty to see though although I’m a little spoilt as I live near Chester zoo...More

Nice zoo - room for improvement

First time visiting London zoo today, it was a nice zoo with a good range of animals and enclosures, however some staff came across quite rude on several occasions and we struggled to find somewhere to eat because lots of places were closed.More

There is only limited parking available near the zoo, primarily due to construction. Your best option is to arrive as early as possible, but also note the hourly parking rate. You can find more information by googling... More
