Experience the Magic of Christmas at London Zoo this December.
With a whole host of festive activities, we’ve got everything you need for a jam-packed fun family day out this Christmas!
VIP Breakfast Meet Santa and Animal Gift Giving Meet Santa Sessions
Fun festive family trail
Santa’s arrived early to London Zoo to do some research on what the animals would like for Christmas. But he’ll need your help, because with over 18,000 animals there’s far too much for just him and his elves to manage. Grab a trail card and head out across the Zoo gathering information along the way, before reporting back to Mrs Claus in the polar post room and helping to make sure all the animals get the perfect present this Christmas!
Discover the Sensory Sweet Shop! NEW FOR 2020
Clouds of candy floss, a marshmallow meadow and a forest of candy canes – discover our fantasy sweetshop, brand new for 2020. Explore the fantastical settings and then why not grab a treat from one of the nearby stalls. If you can’t spoil yourself at Christmas, when can you…
