ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Regretfully we have taken the decision to close ZSL Whipsnade Zoo to visitors with immediate effect, and until further notice, following the latest update from the UK Government. This is the right and responsible decision to protect our people and our community.

Rest assured that our animals will remain well fed and cared for, and the top priority for our dedicated zookeepers and other essential zoo staff, and we are making sure these front line workers are able to get to and from work safely. Find out more
