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!

The zoo has a great range of animal, birds and insects to see with talks and presentations going on throughout the day. I was impressed at how spotlessly clean the zoo was, and there are loads of benches, picnic and play areas as well. The food was overpriced but you expect that in a London tourist attraction. A good day... More

The facility is older, but that adds to the charm of the zoo experience. So many zoos are spread out, and you don't see many animals. At the ZSL London Zoo, you never go more than a few minutes between animals, who are easily spotted in their enclosures. It was delightful day.

Visited recently on a hot day - fabulous day. Enclosures all wonderful - good sizes and well thought out. Lots of animals too! Some animals were difficult to spot/hard to see/a long way away. But it was a hot day, so I totally don't blame them! It was really nice to see that the animals had the choice to get... More

I also goo to a zoo when I visit somewhere new. This was a huge zoo with lots of sections to explore and quite a few buildings that house animals. I liked walking through the park to get to the zoo. It was a great view along the way.

A lovely trip to the zoo but advertised timed activities weren't always happening. Worth the trip but don't expect to be entertained for longer than 1.5/2 hours.... Think would go during day in future as it doesn't eat into the evening....

I went to London Zoo on Friday with my friends for the "Zoo Lates" experience. I had not done this before, but, I was assured by my friends that it was worth the ticket price. I absolutely loved it. Sadly the gorillas were not on show due to the babies, but we saw the giraffes, lions and tigers. There was... More

Many parts of the Zoo are in need of updating. The aviary in the main complex was very dirty, the plant life was in very poor condition and we felt this wasn't a particularly good environment for the birds. This is a veyr poor relation when compared to some other Zoos around the country. e.g Chester, Bristol, & Marwell

My wife and I along with our 2 year old daughter visited on Saturday for the 1st time since we got our membership, and we hadn't been London zoo in nearly 20 years and it was our daughters 1st visit. We were both surprised by the improvements that have been made to the zoo in that time and will definitely... More

4 of us adults went to the zoo for my birthday. It was a great day out and we had lots of fun. This including being able to go round the zoo at our own pace, the education labels around and the staff at the zoo who were always smiling and helpful. The show at the amphitheatre was excellent.
