Designed with the Zoo’s grown-up audiences in mind, the Tours have been created to allow guests to enjoy the gardens at a leisurely pace, while seeing a unique side to London’s Zoo and learning more about the conservation charity, ZSL and the animals they strive to preserve and protect. 

Led by one of London Zoo’s expert guides, guests will stroll along the 30-minute-long tour while learning about some stories behind the Zoos rich 200-year history, the specially selected flora, and a tour dedicated to the conservation work ZSL do across the world.  

After hearing captivating stories guests will then sit down for a delicious cream tea of homemade earl grey infused scones served with Devon clotted cream, delicious strawberry jam and a pot of English Breakfast tea at one of London Zoo’s unique dining locations.

“ZSL London Zoo truly is the perfect day out for people of all ages, and we’ve created Tours and Teas with our adult audiences in mind. Every month we will explore the Zoo on a bespoke tour, with talks on a fascinating array of topics, including our global conservation work and the wonderful wildlife at ZSL London Zoo.
