ZSL London Zoo
Set in leafy Regent’s Park amid listed buildings and beautiful gardens, ZSL London Zoo is something of an oasis in the heart of the city. Educating and inspiring visitors since 1847, it’s one of the world’s leading zoos, with over 650 species to discover, as well as live shows and fascinating immersive exhibits.
Its newest exhibit is also one of its most breathtaking, with three walkways covering 2,500sqm of thrilling Indian-themed terrain, allowing visitors to get closer than ever before to mighty Asiatic lions. Other unmissable attractions include Europe’s only walk-through spider enclosure, a journey through the Madagascan forest where lemurs leap and climb all around you, and England’s largest penguin pool where Humboldt penguins dive, swim, frolic and feed. Into Africa affords great views of the zoo’s graceful giraffes from the viewing platform, and Gorilla Kingdom brings the African rainforest to the heart of London.
