New exhibit opening summer 2021!

24 Jul 2021

Don’t miss Giants of the Galápagos.

This summer our three Galápagos giant tortoises are moving to a brand-new home right in the heart of the zoo.
Step inside to enjoy the balmy climate of the Galápagos Archipelago and discover these magnificent reptiles who can live for over a century. Imagine how the world might change in their lifetime and discover how we can protect them – and our planet – for the years to come.

The climate-controlled exhibit – to be built right next to the zoo’s central courtyard – is the perfect new home for tortoises Polly, Dolly and Priscilla, complete with watery pools and mud wallow, and will offer visitors unobstructed views of these gentle giants.

One floor, dome-roofed, brown building with two entrances, surrounded by trees

Summer holiday fun
During the summer holidays (24 July - 31 August) this brand-new exhibit will be part of an incredible summer adventure for all the family: we’re inviting you to travel the world without leaving London in a celebration of the world’s wildlife and cultures, including this glimpse of the Galapagos.
