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 biggest and most breathtaking experience to feature at ZSL London Zoo, the Land of the Lions presents an incredible ‘windowless view’ into the big cats’ enclosure.  Enter the amphitheatre-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

Tiger Territory is home to critically endangered Sumatran tigers and immerses visitors in the tiger’s lush habitat!  You’ll come face to face with the tigers through the floor to ceiling glass windows.

Gorilla Kingdom

Get up close to the zoo’s western lowland gorillas in a natural environment – one that mimics their African rainforest!  Take a peek at the gorillas and see what they’re up to before learning a bit more about them through interactive activities and exhibits.

Penguin Beach

Visit the penguin pad and watch the birds 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

A visit to the zoo’s reptile will also interest fans of the Harry Potter films!  A scene from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone involving Harry and a talking Burmese python was filmed at the Reptile House.  See komodo dragons, tortoises and extremely venomous snakes.

Rainforest Life

This indoor exhibit introduces visitors to life living in a humid and sticky rainforest!  Come face to face with a number of rainforest residents, including monkeys, sloth and armadillo!  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 let off some steam in the educational play areas.

Meet the Monkeys

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

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
