About
ZSL London Zoo is packed full of wonder and amazement, with over 650 species of animals to meet and thousands more surprising and fascinating facts just waiting to be discovered. Find yourself face-to-face with our Asiatic lions and our friendly giraffes whilst they enjoy a spot of lunch. Wander through our Madagascan shrub forest and see how many of our ring-tailed lemurs you can spot before heading down to B.U.G.S to quiz our insect experts on the importance of insects to our ecosystem. Then, if you're feeling brave, you can get up close and personal and take a Spider Selfie with our resident arachnids in Europe’s only walk-through spider experience. Not to mention firm favourites Gorilla Kingdom, Penguin Beach and Tiger Territory. This is a place where fun days help us fund raise. Where your visit will help support our conservation work in over 50 countries around the world. Where really great days out can make a really positive difference to the wildlife we work to protect.

3rd time at ZSL London Zoo. And the place seems to just get better, there is new enclosures and whilst we were there, there was new ones getting built too. There is 3 trails you can take and they all have the great animals split amongst them. We had our dinner there and it was ok, a bit pricey for what was on offer but still ok. The gift shop is class, lots of products.

Terrible
Jul 2021 • Family
First time with my grandson ,first I spent over a hundred pound including parking ,I was so shocked at not seeing many animals ,but you could see human animals cleaning cages,children under three had no chance trying to look in at the animals as cages were over grown with plants and weeds ,If I wanted to see a jungle I would have gone to Brazil, a week ago I went to the isle of wight to the amazon zoo ,meerkat were on show ,we had a walk through with wallabies and the children could touch them ,able to feed fish too ,it was lovely no hiding animals ,parts of the park was closed just for staff, I know we have had covid but the zoo should see amazon zoo,over all people left as we did ,even some exbhits had wood round you couldn't see animals up close so not happy at all, a can say if you wish to eat out go to the zoo plenty off food for humans.

Twilight experience
Jul 2021 • Friends
Visited the twilight experience (standard entry) lovely atmosphere and vibe - would be better if open a bit longer (10:30/11) also entrance price is high considering price of food and drink inside (£8.50 for a can of pre mixed gin) not many animals to see

Too many closed or empty exhibits
Jul 2021
As a Londoner I've grown up visiting the Zoo and always enjoyed the visit. This was a real let-down for me and my daughter. ZSL London Zoo may say that they're working to improve the experience. They have a long way to go. There's building and renovation work going on, which I don't think is mentioned on their website, and which reduces the number of exhibits you can view. We saw everything in just over three hours, when this used to be a full day out. And yes, the numbers of animals you can see have fallen dramatically. Highlight? - Penguin Beach. Biggest disappointments? - lions (couldn't see any), tigers (saw one) and giraffes (two, looking forlorn on a sparse asphalt yard).

We were doubly unlucky in that some of the exhibits had flooded in overnight rain, but again there was no mention of this online before you book. So we got to the Zoo to expect everything to be open as usual, yet to find some of the main houses and exhibits closed, and many others closed for refurbishment.

The main issue for the Zoo isn't just one of its physical estate but rather its poor communication before your visit so it can manage expectations. Disappointing.

A zoo with no animals in it
Jul 2021 • Family
The worst zoo I have ever visited! I took my daughter to London zoo on the 12 July 2021 and boy was it anti climax… so so disappointing. The penguin pool had what I would describe as dripping tap water with no penguins in it.. saw no lions, tigers no gorillas no nothing! I mean I’m not sure these animals were actually there.. I reckon the animals left due to covid and will return when Boris lifts the ban on the 17 July.

If you want to visit a zoo with no animals and have a photograph taken at the start of your trip only to never receive it then book today!

I’m still looking for the refund form!!

Where are the animals?
Jul 2021 • Family
We planned a nice family Birthday trip for our Son, to be faced with the most disappointing day out ever.
Roughly 60% Enclosures empty, literally no animals.
Couldn’t find lions, elephants, gorillas looked as depressed as me.
The whole centre looks run down, unkept and tired looking.
One very unhappy little boy- who coukk K don’t understand.
We felt completely ripped off!!!!

London zoo . Just amazing
Jun 2021 • Family
Last minute decision to go .
Fantastic family day out, you might find it a little expensive if your on a budget. But think that the more money they take the more they can do with the zoo and the animal's get a well cared for life.
Saw the out door dangerous animals show.
Not laughed so much in a long time Cecil killed the show, all the keeps are amazing and have a high tolerance for stupid humans and thick customers.
Cant fault the day.
100 % will go again totally loved the whole experience.
Well done to all the staff.

A good London attraction
Jun 2021 • Couples
A great traditional London attraction at the top corner of Regents Park. A traditional zoo that has managed to reopen and successfully allowed visitors and is Covid compliant. Multiple routes to follow around attraction to maintain social distancing.
