About London Zoo

London Zoo is run by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), which is an international conservation charity, working hard to protect species around the world. In 2026 the ZSL will celebrate its 200th anniversary; London Zoo itself will celebrate in 2028. With an emphasis on science and conservation, today the London Zoo's ethos is much more on educating people to protect species internationally, and your ticket donation contributes to this cause.

In terms of your day out there is plenty to see; with different routes to explore various animals from around the world. Extra experiences such as feeding times, shows and demonstrations, as well as seasonal events, remain a popular part of your day out.

ZSL London Zoo has almost 750 species of animal, from the smallest monkey to the tall giraffe. Like zoos the world over,  London Zoo has undergone a raft of changes to bring down the bars and allow visitors to get closer to the animals. London Zoo's reptile house is of course, the location of filming of the first Harry Potter film.

There are also birds, butterflies, giraffes, zebras, and all other shapes and sizes of the world's creatures.

At the London Zoo you can enjoy a variety of up close encounters with your favourite animals with daily shows, live feeds and demonstrations, as you would expect from a world class zoo.

Experiences - buy a gift day for a truly memorable day out

London Zoo also offer you the chance to purchase experience opportunities which range in price depending on length of time. For example, you can currently feed the gorillas for as little as around £15 per person, or you can purchase a 'Junior Keeper for the Day', which will cost you a lot more.

The London Zoo is located to the north of the very centre of London where most attractions are. The London Zoo site is at the northern end of Regent's Park, one of London's several very large Royal Parks.

The zoo straddles the Regent's Canal along which boat trips are available. You can walk along the canal to Camden Lock, one of London's most visited markets. Madame Tussauds is on the opposite side of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill another area of parkland that extends seamlessly north of Regent's Park has splendid views of the London skyline.

Nearest Underground station

ZSL London Zoo is within walking distance of Camden Town (15mins) and Regent's Park (20 mins) stations. Camden Town is on the Northern Line, Regent's Park (Bakerloo Line).

You can also get the 274 London bus from Baker Street Underground (Circle, District, Bakerloo, Metropolitan and Jubilee Line) to a stop outside the zoo.

Hop-on, hop-off buses

None of London's hop on, hop off sightseeing buses have stops at London Zoo. You can get off at Baker Street (the stop for Madame Tussauds) and get the 274 London bus to the zoo or it is a 20 minute walk across Regent's Park.
