Probably the world's most famous zoo, ZSL London Zoo has been entertaining and delighting visitors since it opened to the public in 1847. With over 720 animal species, exciting and innovative new exhibits and heritage-listed building almost as famous as their inhabitants it's a great day out.See animals in a different light at Rainforest Life; get breathtakingly close to our colony of lowland gorillas and don’t miss the action in the amphitheatre!

I went with my family and had an amazing time. We all are animal lovers so it was a great day for us. Very enjoyable! The zoo is very big and even though we went really early, we still couldn't see everything. I would suggest going as early as possible. The food places were good too and the directions are... More

Get your walking shoes on, lots of walking to be done, so much to see, fun day out for young and old, slightly on the expensive side, but worth a visit

If you love animals and having fun, this is the best place to go! It was amazing, and so informative. It's for everyone - children and adults. You need the whole day if you want to go, because there is just so much to see!

Took the c2 bus from Victoria station to zoo. Before you even pay for entry you get your photo taken which at the end of your trip you can find all the photos in a nice presentation folder for the sum of £20. We were 2 adults and 1 child but as we had a network rail 2 for 1... More

Rained most of the time we was there, despite this had a lovley day, saw all the animals. Only downside is the prices at the cafe and shops not realistic! 2.50 for a cookie!! Seriously way too much. Other than that okay but won't rush back with a pack lunch and the sun of course

As always London zoo doesn't dissapoint. The enclosures are fresh, interactive and information. I particularly enjoyed gorilla Kingdom and the baby gorilla, and the nocturnal house. The butterfly house was also amazing. Definitely one of the best zoos ive visited. Only bad point was we didn't have much time so we didn't get to see everything.

My boyfriend and I visited the zoo in january, and it was amazing. The staff was incredible and the whole place was so beautiful. Definitly worth taking the trip, then walk home by regent park.

Visited ZSL London zoo on a warm clear day in August 2015, two adults early 30s and a 2yr daughter. We went by tube, so walked through Regents Park, which is a big, clean and beautifully landscaped - on the way home with very tired swollen feet, I walked barefoot on the grass - something I would not do in...
