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!

Love love love London zoo, been coming here for the past thirty years with a few years gap in between and every time it gets better and better, the entrance fee of £47 for two is steep but we spent 5 1/2 hours here so not too bad when you counter that into the equation, the added green screen photography...

This is the best zoo I've been to in a very long time. The enclosures are very well designed with each one being different and representing the animals natural habitat. There is so much to do we was a bit rushed to get everything in, but that's just the time of the year. I highly recommend for everyone, brilliant for... More

This is the first zoo trip for my kids and they love it. It was an amazing experience for them with a lot of the animals that they had only read about in books. The gorillas and giraffes are huge and stunning. Staff there is nice but the food are a bit pricy. all in all, its a lovely day... More

We started the day with a walk through Regent's Park then toured the aquarium, the reptile house, the lions, and the tigers. We only wish that the zoo had stayed open later so that we could have seen more. The reptile house is a special treat, especially as it added another site to our tour of Harry Potter sites. Lunch...

As a family group of five we were very excited about visiting the zoo today. The cost was £105 for our group and we spent 2 hours there. The zoo is evidently interesting in terms of the architecture and history however the space and environment available for the animals left my daughter upset and all of us concerned and questioning...

When I travel, the local zoo is always at the top of the list as a priority to visit. While a wonderful zoo, with many of it exhibits designed to accommodate both frigid rainy days or sultry hot days it is a zoo for all seasons. Had an impromptu discussion with a zookeeper about the Komodo Dragon and that was... More

I had the absolute best time at this beautiful zoo, a wide range of animals, lovely enclosures, easy maps to follow and plenty of toilets, shops and a large restaurant to eat at. Would recommend to any family or for couples looking for something different to do. Also only a short walk from Camden!

A 36-acre zoo, in the north side of Regent Park that will keep you busy a whole day and you will really have fun either going with friends or having kids with you. Grab a free map in the entrance (ticket price quite fair for the size of the zoo) and explore the different organized areas; there is a gorilla... More

Visited midweek on a rainy day and had as much fun as if it were bright sunshine! The inclement weather meant we almost had the zoo with only a handful of visitors. Zoo keepers were out of their way generous with animal information an really enhanced our visit. Enough inside exhibits to take refuge during rainy times. A smaller zoo... More
