Weddings & Receptions

 Our wedding coordinators can be involved as much or as little as you wish, from recommending one of our three wedding packages or consulting with our Head Chef to create a menu exclusively for you and your guests. They are on hand to assist you all the way from your first visit through to the seamless planning of your most memorable day. By holding your event at ZSL London Zoo you will be directly contributing to the international conservation charity the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), supporting the global conservation of animals and their habitats. 

Wedding - Penguin Beach
 Situated in the heart of the Zoo, the elegant Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion overlooks its own exhibit – kangaroos, emus and wallabies in their outback enclosure. Bathed in natural light from the 360° windows and offering exquisite sunset views, it is a perfect choice for a beautiful and intimate wedding. Meanwhile, a grand banquet in our charming Prince Albert Suite or an informal barbecue on the tranquil Prince Albert Lawn and Terrace offer flexible and relaxing options for your special day.

Mappin Pavilion Wedding Guests
 There’s no experience that can compare to a reception in one of our animal houses. The ideal way to show off your unique venue, animal house receptions are available when the Zoo
closes for up to three hours, and can be booked, individually or in conjunction with a suite, where the ceremony would be held. Whether you want to enter the enigmatic world of our beautiful tigers or hit the beach with a colony of adorable penguins, we’ve got an amazing setting to suit you and your guests. 
Tiger Territory
 A live animal encounter is a wonderful way to entertain your guests and create memories that will last a lifetime. Add an amazing animal to your guest list from a selection of our friendliest, funniest and most remarkable residents for a meet and greet, lasting around 25 minutes. They’ll bring their keeper along withthem to ensure you and your guests get the
most out of their visit.
