ZSL London Zoo has over 12000 amazing animals for you to see. During the last three years ZSL London Zoo has been undergoing a raft of changes to ďbring down the barsĒ and allow visitors to get closer to an astonishing 650 species of animal. Watch squirrel monkeys cheekily clamber on ropes above your heads in Meet the Monkeys, while butterflies elegantly flitter and flutter around you in Butterfly Paradise. Come eye to eye with a giraffe and see zebras, okapis and other amazing African mammals in Into Africa.
See whatís new at ZSL London Zoo by visiting two major new attractions.

Venture into the heart of Central African rainforest in the outstanding new exhibit, Gorilla Kingdom. Here you will journey along a sensational path leading you past African birds and other elusive forest animals before emerging into a spectacular natural forest clearing where you can get closer than ever to a group of western lowland gorillas and black and white colobus monkeys.
You can also experience an ĎAnimals in Action' display - 30 minutes of flying, foraging and leaping action with animals showing their amazing natural skills and abilities.
Learning about the conservation of all these incredible species is a central theme throughout your entire visit.

The Latest User Reviews of London Zoo
I go to London Zoo every year, I don't even have children to take with me, I just go with my partner. Animals are for grown-ups, too!!
The new Rainforest experience bit is fantastic. It's just very well done, you are in the room with the animals, no cages, no vivariums. Tiny little monkies are playing a few feet infront of you. I probably spent about an hour alone in this room spotting and watching the wildlife. That may also be because I spotted one of my favorite animals, a big hairy sloth :D
The butterfly house is great, too. A bit of an ayesore on the outside with this crazy inflatable entrance, but inside it's beautiful. All these different kinds of butterflies around you, and then when you look a bit closer, you notice there's hundreds more. The sleepy moths are pretty incredible, too.
My other favorite part is the nocturnal animals. Very interesting and often strange-looking creatures.
The food is pretty expensive in the restaurant, so I'd advise bringing a packed lunch with you. But that's really the only negative thing I can think of. It's a great bit of escapism for the day, learning about the animals we share the world with and putting a few things into perspective.

Tony Armstrong-Jones (Lord Snowdon) wasn't alone in designing the London Zoo aviary. The inimitable architect Cedric Price and engineer Frank Newby both contributed to this pioneering structure - completed in 1964.
