Summer Parties

However you wish to celebrate this summer add some animal magic with a party at ZSL London Zoo and enjoy summer entertaining with a difference. ZSL London Zoo’s unique selection of outdoor terraces, lawns, verandas, animal environments and exhibits provide a fun setting for al fresco entertaining for up to 600 guests.

Why not hit the beach this summer at Penguin Beach. Soak up the sun with a refreshing cocktail before a barbeque or fork buffet while you watch the penguins frolic in their fabulous environment. Then amaze and delight your guests at your exclusive Penguin Beach Live! demonstration. One of our keepers will invite 12 of your companions onto Penguin Beach for an up close encounter with the penguins and their keeper.

Drawing visitors into the realm of the critically endangered Sumatran tiger, Tiger Territory recreates the natural Indonesian forest habitat of these magnificent predators. This incredible space is a perfect home for our Sumatran tigers, Jae Jae, Melati and their three adorable cubs, and a stunning backdrop for your event. From the Tiger Territory guests can also enjoy fabulous views, taking in camels, bearded pigs and Malayan tapir.

For a more traditional, relaxed summer garden party, host an event with giant games on The Prince Albert Lawn and Terrace, or open a door to the outback from the stunning Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion home to our wallabies, emus and kangaroos.
