Regretfully we have taken the decision to close ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoos to visitors with immediate effect, and until further notice, following the latest update from the UK Government. This is the right and responsible decision to protect our people and our community.

Rest assured that our animals will remain well fed and cared for, and the top priority for our dedicated zookeepers and other essential zoo staff, and we are making sure these front line workers are able to get to and from work safely. Find out more.

Founded in 1826, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international scientific, conservation and educational charity devoted to the worldwide conservation of the animals and their habitats.

Probably the world’s most famous zoo, ZSL London Zoo has been entertaining and delighting visitors since it opened to the public in 1847. With over 760 different species of animal, ZSL London Zoo is a brilliant way to immerse yourself into the animal kingdom.
