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!

Visited 25 September as a late birthday present for my mum. Everything went so well, there is so much to see during the day, there are many shows during the day. We were going to go for a tiger show but we wanted to see all the other animals. Literally loved every section, all the staff there knew their stuff.... More

We had a great day at London Zoo. Good selection of animals. All looking well in their habitats. Easy to fill the whole day as it is a large site. Good range of food option albeit a little on the expensive side. Difficult to satisfy non dairy diet in eateries.

I have been a member of the Zoo for over a year, it is a wonderful place to visit and explore and a great day out for all ages try and see if you can spot the Aye Aye and a must my favorite the warthogs. The Zoo does need some desperate investment though. 5 stars for the precious creatures...

We visited at the end of September and how lucky were we, great weather not too hot and sunny shining. We had been told that he zoo was not very big but to be fair we unintentionally spent the whole day there and still didn't see everything.there are some very clever and interesting but informative exhibits amongst the animals.

We had a lovely day with granddaughter etc. The animals on display were a good selection - but in many cases difficult for a 3-year-old to see, so she had to be picked up a lot. The food was truly awful - suggest you bring your own. The directions to get there could have been better. Its a long walk... More

Not a very big zoo... Quite small but very well made... Enough to spend 1-2 hours... 10 mins in taxi from madam tussad and lords Cricket ground... But not a walking distance... Food and toilet available... Price around 20 pound and london pass card accepted... Overall keep it in your list... See if you have time or skip it with... More

We had a great Sunday walking around the Zoo. Loved the Penguin Beach with all the Penguins. I still don't understand how a zoo could commission and build a penguin enclosure which is made of a material which is dangerous to penguins! What is even more amazing is that it was there about two years ago (when it was unveiled)... More
