Get closer to some of the hairiest, scariest, tallest and smallest animals. ZSL London Zoo has almost 750 species of animal, from the smallest monkey to the tall giraffe.
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 760 animal species, exciting and innovative new exhibits and heritage listed buildings almost as famous as their inhabitants, it's a great day out!
Land of the Lions
ZSL London Zoo has opened its biggest and most breath-taking experience yet: Land of the Lions. Home to a pride of endangered Asiatic lions, the £5.7m Land of the Lions features an awe-inspiring 'windowless-view' of the big cat's enclosure. Enter the crumbling ruin of an amphitheatre-style Lion Temple and see the majestic big cats roaming just metres away, separated only by fine wires. Land of the Lions will help to support ZSL's international conversation efforts to protect Asiatic Lions.
Visitors to Tiger Territory will embark on a journey through an Indonesian habitat, coming face-to-face with beautiful tigers through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Tiger Territory takes visitors closer than ever to the natural environment of one of nature's most awesome predators and brings to light the conservation issues these creatures face in the wild.
Penguins & Gorillas
Head down to the beach and observe London’s largest colony of Humboldt Penguins as they swim, dive, frolic and feed. Move through lush forested pathways and come face to face with the majestic Western Lowland Gorilla, and wander from day through into night in London’s only living rainforest.
In with the Lemurs
In with the Lemurs is the brand new walk-through exhibit at ZSL London Zoo, where you can get closer than ever before to 15 ring-tail lemurs and one black and white ruffed lemur. Enter a woodland habitat and embark on a journey through the Madagascan shrub forest where the evolutionarily unique primates will be leaping, climbing and possibly sunbathing with no barriers between you and them.
Meet your favourite farm animals like cows, sheep, pigs, goats and chickens in this hands-on petting zoo, alongside some less common animal species like llamas and alpacas.
School’s IN for summer!
Superhero Academy launches at ZSL London Zoo
Saturday 21st July - Sunday 2nd September
KAPOW! School’s not out for summer this year, as ZSL London Zoo invites everyone to enrol in superhero training this July, at ZSL’s Superhero Academy - a new adventure for the whole family to enjoy.
As part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, from Saturday 21 July to Sunday 2 September, kids will be able to dust off their capes and train in animal strength, night vision, agility and speed at ZSL’s special centre for superheroes.
Once inside, junior recruits will learn how to harness the superpowers of the world’s most incredible wildlife in four special training areas:
WHAM! After collecting their mission pack and mask, kids will step into their first class to learn all-important night vision skills from the nocturnal owl - using special goggles to spot potential food in its woodland home.
WHOOSH! Next, kids can unlock the power of super speed, racing against the world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah, before mastering the leafcutter ant’s super strength in time to lift a three tonne taxi safely out of the way.
ZOOM! Finally, students can climb their way to completion like the incredible gecko, mastering their toughest skill yet – defying gravity to crawl across the bedroom ceiling.
After completing their Superhero Academy training, young heroes can have their very own graduation photo taken – just in the nick of time!
Because new recruits will then need to use all their new superskills to help ZSL’s very own superhero Captain Z tackle The Maze – a tricky series of obstacles and challenges made by his archnemesis Plastico: a fiendish villain trying to overwhelm the environment with plastic pollution.
Once junior superheroes have finished saving the day they can spend their downtime exploring the Zoo, discovering even more about the 19,000 super-animals who call it home.
Superhero Academy is part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, a year-long celebration of incredible wildlife and the ZSL superheroes working to protect animals around the world.
Superhero Academy at ZSL London Zoo runs from Saturday 21 July to Sunday 2 September. A great value day out, this super experience is included in Zoo entry price... BOOM!
