Highlights of ZSL London Zoo
Near the entrance we can find the aquarium. It is world’s very first aquarium opened at London Zoo in 1853, which is huge and has 3 halls. Also, the Reptile House where Harry Potter spoke to a snake, and Gorilla Kingdom which brings you up close to a group of Western lowland Gorillas.
Kids and adults will be enthralled by Butterfly Paradise, where butterflies wager freely, and there are creepy crawlies in BUGS! There are plenty of opportunities to feed or groom sheep and goats in the Touch Zone, but don’t miss George, the scarlet macaw, who is likely to upstage everything else in the daily animals in action live show.
Facilities at ZSL London Zoo
There is a playground within the zoo which is probably aimed at children under 5s and 5-14 years old. Lots for them to climb on, up and under! This is a great space to let the kids go wild so you can enjoy your picnic lunch. There’s a carousel too.
There’s one main restaurant, the Terrace Restaurant and also food outlets around the zoo serving cold food and hot and cold drinks.
There are lots of toilets around the zoo complex, so we don’t have to wait long to come across another one! Clean, and no queues! All toilets have baby-changing stations.

London Zoo has a good access for wheelchairs, prams etc. There are manual wheel chairs available at entrance. There is no hire charge, but you pay a deposit, which is refunded on return of the wheelchair. It is strongly recommended that you book a wheelchair in advance.
