Visit: ZSL London Zoo, London, England
Upon entering, plot your itinerary through the diverse complex. See the Tiger Territory, designed to mimic the tropical foliage of the Island of Sumtran to make the zoo's tigers feel at home.
Then hit the Beach and join London’s biggest penguin colony. Penguin Beach recreates a South American beach landscape in the heart of London, with stunning colonies of around 200 Macaroni and Humboldt penguins. The exhibit features a large pool with underwater viewing areas so you can see how these flippered friends fly under the waves. And a larger demonstration area with seating turns feeding time into an even bigger spectacle than before.
Meet the giant Galapagos tortoise that can live for over 150 years, and carry around huge, bony shells that they can hide inside if they feel threatened. Visit the fantastic Blackburn Pavilion and learn how Darwin's contemporary, John Gould, identified the differences between species of finches that Darwin brought back from the Galapagos, helping Darwin formulate his theories on evolution.
You can observe the behavior of the apes in the award-winning Gorilla Kingdom, and also come face to face with a group of Bolivian Squirrel monkeys in conditions akin to their natural habitat.
Travel into Africa and marvel at the giraffes via a raised viewing platform or check out the playful yet lethal hunting dogs. Be sure to observe the komodo dragons prowling their state-of-the-art lair, landscaped to mimic a dry river bed.

I love zoos and it was nice to see the Harry Potter scene.
If you are looking for a local day trip you cannot do any better that a visit to the London Zoo. The weather was great and I had a very enjoyable time. I got many great pictures which I will share a few.
The Zoo was entertaining and good, but the kindness of Viator's staff was even better. We ask them to reschedule our ticket in the very last minute, and they did immediately : Thanks!
It was pouring with rain so we pretty much had the zoo to ourselves, we had a great day
Had a great day, having lovely weather added to the great day. Lots to see with some close up and personal areas with the animals and butterflies was amazing. Highly recommend
Didn't really get the time to spend there to truly give an opinion. Small.
Not a very good place to go. Firstly it does not have a direct connectivity, if you go by bus, you need to atleast change 2 buses. Also add a 1-2 mile walk to get to the park. Park is well maintained, but not superb.
So so - can try if nothing else is available under excursions
couldnt get in unable to find our ticket
