Explore ZSL London Zoo
 
Set in leafy Regent's Park amid heritage-listed buildings and beautiful gardens, ZSL London Zoo has been educating and inspiring visitors since opening to the public in 1847.

It’s all about getting up and close with the animals, for example the ‘B.U.G.S!’ exhibit allows visitors to experience Europe’s only walk-through spider enclosure.

Other amazing interactive exhibits include ‘In with the Lemurs’, which takes visitors on a journey through the Madagascan forest where lemurs will be leaping, climbing and lounging all around them.

Visitors can also head down to England’s largest penguin pool at Penguin Beach and watch the Humboldt penguins dive, swim, frolic and feed, or step ‘Into Africa’ and observe the elegance and grace of the giraffes from the viewing platform.

Groups can move through lush forested pathways where the Gorilla Kingdom brings the African rainforest to the heart of London. And younger visitors can explore Animal Adventure – home to meerkats, llamas and aardvarks in an immersive animal experience, designed for children, by children.
