More Information about ZSL London Zoo

See little, large, hairy and scary animals from across the globe in the heart of London at ZSL London Zoo! Run by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), London Zoo in Regent’s Park houses a collection of 755 species of animal in beautiful landscaped grounds. Meet rats, bat and, spiders and owls and face a mystery feely-box challenge in the Black Widow’s Lair. Browse the Victorian Grim Curiosity Shop to see some creepy and eccentric objects from ZSL’s historical collections – there’s even a surprise reptilian guest! You can also visit the dark Owl Emporium to see the Zoo’s magnificent owls demonstrate their nocturnal abilities and get crafty at the Bat Cave activity zone, where you can make treats for the zoo’s short-tailed bats.

Land of the Lions

The most breathtaking experience to feature at ZSL London Zoo, the Land of the Lions presents an astonishing ‘windowless view’ into the big cats’ enclosure. Enter the amphitheater-style Lion’s temple and peer into the enclosure to see the Big Cats mere metres away, separated only by very fine wires – a seriously exhilarating experience.

Tiger Territory

Come face to face with terrifying tigers through floor to ceiling glass windows! The Tiger Territory is home to critically endangered Sumatran tigers and immerses visitors in the tiger’s lush habitat!

Gorilla Kingdom

Get a close view of the zoo’s western lowland gorillas in an environment that mimics their African rainforest! The interactive exhibits will teach you about the gorillas as you admire them!

Penguin Beach

Visit the penguins and watch them waddle around their enclosure before diving into the clear water! Catch a glimpse of the penguins shooting through the water from the underwater viewing bubble – you’ll soon find out exactly why this attraction is called ‘Penguin Beach’!

Reptile House

If you're a fan of Harry Potter - visiting the Reptile House is a must! You'll remember the famous scene from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone involving Harry and a talking Burmese python - it was filmed at the Reptile House! You'll also find komodo dragons, tortoises and extremely venomous snakes here.

Rainforest Life

Come face to face with a number of rainforest residents, including monkeys, sloth and armadillo in this indoor exhibit! Step into the night life area – the light will dim and you’ll discover bats, rats and other nocturnal wonders.

Children’s Zoo

Smaller children will love the Children’s Zoo – they can visit the Touch Zone and pat goats, sheep and chickens and enjoy the educational play areas.

Meet the Monkeys

Walk through this outdoor enclosure that opens up into the skies of London. The enclosure houses a breeding group of black-capped squirrel monkeys and is designed to recreate the Bolivian rainforests as closely as possible. Watch out for squirrel monkeys scurrying between the branches!
