Meet Santa at ZSL London Zoo

Our Christmas activities have now finished for 2019, but we hope you'll still be able to visit us over the festive period - we're open every day except for Christmas Day itself. 

 

Little ones can Meet Santa in his magical grotto at the heart of the Zoo and receive a special early Christmas gift to take home.

Enjoy festive crafts with Santa's elves before meeting the man himself! 

Every child will receive an early Christmas gift as well as have the opportunity to pose for a yuletide photograph with Santa*. Tickets cost £12 per child. 

We've added two new event dates! Book your Meet Santa tickets below:

Wednesday 18 December 2019

Thursday 19 December 2019

 

  • All children aged 3 and over will require a Zoo admission ticket or valid ZSL Membership in addition to a Meet Santa ticket. Children under 3 years will require a Meet Santa ticket only. All accompanying adults will require a Zoo admission ticket or valid ZSL Membership.
  • If you require more than 3 Meet Santa tickets, you will need to book more than one slot to allow everyone to have enough time with the man himself. You can either make separate bookings online or can call Supporter Services on 0344 225 1826. If the slots are booked within the same session time, you can all still enter the grotto together, up to a limit of 7 people in total.
  • Meet Santa will also be taking place at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

*Photographs are an additional cost.
