We all love the sunshine, but it is not something you can guarantee in London all year round! Luckily, ZSL London Zoo is great whatever the weather is doing. With a number of indoor enclosures and animal houses - some which even transport you to tropical climates - and plenty of sheltered spaces all around the zoo, discover your ultimate guide to a rainy ZSL London Zoo...
Indoor animal houses
The fish may be wet but you don’t have to be! Step inside the Aquarium and be submerged in an underwater world of exotic, beautiful and endangered fish including amazing coral reef displays.
This walk through experience protects you and our array of exotic butterflies from the wet weather! Butterfly Paradise offers visitors the opportunity to learn more about life cycles, biodiversity and climate change while surrounded by the hundreds of butterflies chosen to represent the 100,000 species that exist on the planet.
B.U.G.S (Biodiversity Underpinning Global Survival) is the zoo’s cutting edge biodiversity and Conservation exhibit. It is the main place where invertebrates – animals without backbones – are displayed in the zoo as well as the home of In With The Spiders - the UK's first ever walk-through spider exhibit!
Dragons and Giants
Head behind the Reptile House to find the home of Ganas, our Komodo Dragon. With razor sharp teeth and toxic saliva that can fell a buffalo, ZSL London Zoo's Komodo dragon is a formidable predator.
Plenty of Sheltered Spaces
In with the Lemurs has a large indoor area for both humans and lemurs alike and over at Happy Families make sure you check the window into the otters den, where you can often see ZSL London Zoo's family of oriental short-clawed otters cutely cuddled up together - rain or shine!
