ZSL London Zoo offers flexible pricing options that are date-based.

Ticket prices vary based on the time of year and how busy the Zoo is expected to be on any given day.

Our flexible ticket prices make it easier for you to plan your visit as you can browse through different ticket prices across the year and choose the perfect time to visit based on your budget. It also helps us spread out attendance more evenly throughout the year and improve the guest experience at our Zoos.
