    Always torn about zoos, but the conservation ZSL do makes up for it here. The animals seem happy!
  • Valentina D.
    Buy tickets in advanced on internet and be there just before 10am when it opens. Take overground + bus 274 to get there easily.
  • Valentina D.
    Lovely clean spacious zoo! Animals are well fed and treated, cages not small but good sizes. My spotlight was the tigers. But every animal is worth to see. I spent all day long and it is def a must

    Unabbreviated, this place is called Zoological Society of London London Zoo. Think they could come up with a better name

    If you live anywhere in Greater London and love animals, membership is worth the investment. It's expensive but you can come as often as you like, and includes Whipsnade Zoo as well.
