Come face to face with more than 700 animal species at ZSL London Zoo which has been entertaining visitors since it opened its doors to the public in 1847.

Wander through the zoo visiting your favourite animals or follow one of the set, colour-coded routes. Pink, orange and blue routes guide you past lions, tiger, giraffes, penguins and more.

What can I see at ZSL London Zoo?

One of the highlights at ZSL London Zoo is Penguin Beach, which features England’s largest penguin pool. Watch the resident colony of Humboldt penguins dart through the water in search of food and fun from a spot by the underwater viewing area. Twice a day you can watch them dive for food during feeding time.

Land of the Lions leads you over walkways where you can see Asiatic lions roaming a recreated Indian village complete with shops and a train station, while Tiger Territory has floor-to-ceiling glass windows for a close-up view of these magnificent cats.

There are walk-through enclosures where you can get even closer to the zoo’s residents. Make your way through Butterfly Paradise where hundreds of butterflies and moths flutter around you in this balmy, tropical haven. In with the Spiders is a walk-through experience where you are surrounded by golden orb spiders spinning their delicate webs.

Other highlights include the zoo’s newest exhibit, Tiny Giants: From Minibeasts to Coral Reefs, which shines a spotlight on some of the smaller creatures such as leafcutter ants, beetles and underwater corals.
