Overview

Founded in 1828, London Zoo was the world's first scientific zoological gardens. Originally intended as a collection for scientific study, it was eventually made open to the public in 1847.

Set in 36 acres of gardens and with over 650 species of animals, the zoo offers the perfect day out for the whole family with lots to do, plenty to see and so much to learn. Visit the cheeky, the deadly, the chirpy and the wild - all at London Zoo. Get closer to your favourite animals, learn about them at the keeper talks and watch them show off their skills at the special daily events.

See animals in a different light at Rainforest Life, the exciting new experience built inside a giant bio-dome which includes birds and free-roaming animals, real rain, exotic living trees and a sweltering 80°F tropical climate.

Walk through London's only living rainforest where you can get incredibly close to a variety of native South American species including monkeys, sloths, armadillos and tamanduas as they trek across a new forest canopy in this no-glass, no-bars experience. Then step out of the light and into the amazing all-new Night Life area, where you'll discover bats, rats and nocturnal wonders who make the dark their home.

By visiting London Zoo, you can help to protect endangered species, conserve natural habitats and bring learning to life for all ages.
