London Zoo Standard Entry Ticket
From US$ 26.23
Experience the thrill and spectacle of the wild kingdom right in the middle of London. Head to ZSL London Zoo — a favorite attraction of Charles Darwin –– with this entry ticket, and opt to upgrade to a skip-the-line from February to October. Spend hours exploring the vibrant habitat displays like Penguin Beach, Gorilla Kingdom, and Tiger Territory. Visit more than 20 themed animal enclosures and catch a live talk or feeding.
What to Expect
With your pass to the ZSL London Zoo, enjoy access to this world-class site that sees over one million visitors per year. With more than 20 unique habitats and 800 species of animals to view, as well as a schedule of exciting animal-themed activities throughout the day, there’s a fun attraction for every visitor.
Just inside the entrance, you can see acclaimed Gorilla Kingdom exhibit. Observe the gorillas and monkeys eating, playing, and interacting in a lush simulated rainforest. Continue on the Tiger Territory, a recently updated habitat that mimics the natural environment of the Sumatran tiger.
Crossing over into Africa, see giraffes, African hunting dogs, and zebra from the elevated viewing platform. Don’t miss the slow and sinister komodo dragon in its lair or the giant Galapagos tortoise, the giant species hailing from the islands where Darwin researched his theory of evolution. Darwin enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Blackburn Pavilion to hear more about the finches used in the ground-breaking study by Darwin and John Gould.
Whatever route you take, carve out some quality time for Penguin Beach. Home to around 200 Macaroni and Humboldt penguins, this vibrant exhibit includes a pool with underwater viewing areas and a demonstration area to view live feedings. Opt to upgrade to a skip-the-line ticket from February to October.

The entire zoo is really well done, but be warned that the goats in the petting zoo are will eat paper right out of your hands, as it ate a map in front of my eyes.

Thirty pounds is quite eye watering for what is now quite an average zoo. The big animals have been moved to Whipsnade, so no elephants. I understand the reasons and changing attitudes plus the role of the zoo as a conservation centre and not a...More
