How to reach

The city prides itself on its transportation system. Reach the Zoo through the Tube, Bus, Overground, Car, and Bike modes.


There is a lot to see and do at the London Zoo, which is why to have the map handy. The map helps locate facilities and navigate the various animal exhibits and activities efficiently.

Beat the crowd

Getting early to the Zoo helps avoid the crowd. Weekdays are better for a peaceful visit as it gets crowded on weekends and school holidays between 10 am and 2 pm.

Best time to visit 

The best time to visit the Zoo is 10 am when the animals are most active and out for food. The season also affects the best time as animals tend to stay inside during hot weather, potentially making it difficult to see them.

Duration Required

Visiting London Zoo takes at least 3-4 hours for families with children. Plan an extra hour if you stop for lunch at one of the restaurants. Adults can go through the zoo in 90 minutes if they rush.

Buy Tickets in advance

Buying them online in advance will save time and money and also avoid last-minute disappointment. Online admission is cheaper than you pay at the ticket entrance.


Entry to London Zoo requires a ticket, and we suggest you plan and book them early. You can cancel these tickets with a full refund up to 24 hours before your visit date.

London Pass
