Voices of London go fare-free at ZSL London Zoo

London’s most talkative residents are being invited to spend a free day at ZSL London Zoo in a bid to make the Zoo the conversation topic of choice.

From Friday 6 to Sunday 8 June 2014, the capital’s black cab drivers, concierges and tourist information centre staff are entitled to free entry to ZSL London Zoo for them and three guests.

The fare-free guests can take the opportunity to visit the Zoo’s brand new luxury pad – the pygmy hippo enclosure - home to Thug and Nicky, a pair of endangered pygmy hippos who have their own heated pools, specially-designed gardens and a team of attentive staff to wait on the twosome hoof and foot.

Giving the busy drivers and tourist guides a well-deserved day out ahead of the busy city summer, Zoo bosses believe the infamously chatty cabbies and helpful concierges will be raving about their wild day out to all of their passengers and customers this summer.

ZSL London Zoo’s Marketing Manager Paz Salcedo-Lopez said: “ZSL London Zoo is one of London’s most unique attractions and we know that London’s chattiest folk will have plenty to talk about after a day out here.

“As well as the Zoo’s brand new pygmy hippo exhibit, cab drivers and concierges will have the chance to see the three-month-old tiger cubs playing outside, and there’s a packed schedule of animal demonstrations and keeper talks which everyone will love.”

To register for their free tickets, ‘voices’ of London simply need to register their details online:

Please note that tickets have now sold out for Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are still available for the Friday.
