Overview

The London zoological gardens in Regent's Park have been around since the Victorian times. Today, the experience isn't about cages and snoozing animals – you can walk through a special enclosure for ring-tailed lemurs and watch them run along ropes right in front of you, or step into a spider enclosure with some of the creepiest crawlies on earth.  No matter what animals your family prefer, everyone will find a creature they love to watch. Families can easily drop in for an hour or come for the day and there are daily events include talks and feeding times as well as one-off events throughout the year. 

Good to knows
