Me and my partner went to London Zoo for our anniversary and loved it. We traveled by train and found it very easy to locate and got Buy One Get One Free entry with our train provider. We loved every second at the zoo. I would suggest taking a packed lunch though as food was quite expensive, but there was... More

We went on what must have been the coldest day of the year but still had a great time. It must be nearly 40 years since my last visit. Like a previous reviewer I was disappointed at the lack of hot food available. I appreciate that the zoo closes early during the winter but please have more regard for visitors... More

London Zoo is a great spot for kids. A large variety of exhibits, with some more unusual experiences and animals which is great. Now that the restaurant has been refurbished, eating at the Zoo is much more pleasant. The playground is great and as there are lots of indoor spaces quite near to the gate, it's fine even if the...

Don't be fooled by my heading..myself and my partner had a day trip to the zoo. Although it seemed everything was being refurbished and hardly any "zoo" animals to be seen..yes there were rabbits, goats,fish,spiders etc but who wants to pay to see these. The website should clearly state which animals you have under refurbishment and which animals are not... More

The London zoo is just amazing. It is in a lovely location in Camden town. We had bought the tickets online and therefore saved money. There is a vast selection of animals to be seen, and the zoo keepers are very friendly. The zoo is built in a beautiful way, at times i did not even think i was in... More

As we travelled by train to london we only had to pay for one adult admission.. The park is beautiful and we spent 5 hours there with our little one.. The animals have huge enclosures and seemed content.. There is a small area that you can go into where the monkeys are free and are swinging from ropes above your... More

I went to London zoo with very high expectations and was sorely disappointed. Having visited a couple of other wildlife parks, I found this to be made up of too much concrete with small enclosures and the staff and animals were all miserable. Not great to be honest.

Went to the zoo with my sister, we have been to many zoos outside of cities but this was our first trip to a city zoo and well worth the visit. We got there for just before it opened and there was a small queue I would recommend coming early as the queues got a lot longer later on. We... More

I loved this! Despite not having been since I was a kid. It has changed a lot and it is much better for the residents than the old style Victorian cages. No longer have elephants - as not able to house them appropriately. The Monkey enclosure you can walk in was really good... lovely to be able to watch them... More
