London Zoo

One of the capital’s best-loved and most enduringly popular attractions, London Zoo has been the highlight of many thousands of family trips to the city ever since its opening in 1826.

An outing to the zoo is guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face – whether young or old – as they are encouraged to interact with the animals, birds and insects on show in the many ‘meet the animals’ experiences. Who can resist a giggle at the cute penguins waddling around their private beach or the comical monkeys and meerkats playing in their close family groups? And this year there are 3 new baby tigers – 2 boys and a girl – just waiting to be adored by everyone who sees them!

The zoo’s new outdoor ‘silent cinema’ takes place during early May, offering visitors the chance to enjoy classic animal movies while surrounded by the sights and sounds of the zoo.  Of course, headphones must be worn so that the real animals are not disturbed!

Various educational events and programmes aim to ensure that the zoo’s all-important conservation work is communicated to and understood by visitors, who can volunteer to help or even adopt an animal as part of the zoo’s ongoing development as a charity organisation.

Whether you choose a gentle stroll with a picnic lunch afterwards, or some real hands-on contact with the animal world, London Zoo is sure to provide you with memories to be treasured long after your visit.
