Enjoy an epic day out at the UK's biggest zoo! Set in 600 acres of panoramic scenery and rolling Chiltern Hills, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is an adventure on an altogether different scale.

Opened in 1931 by the Zoological Society of London, to provide a park for animals with natural surroundings and plenty of space, today's visitors can see more than 2,500 animals. See the elephants on their daily walk around the Zoo, view the majestic rhino in their huge paddock at Rhino of Nepal, meet our African lion pride, spot the cheetahs, at Cheetah Rock as they speed by and don't forget to look up our lofty giraffes too! Visitors can also enjoy daily shows and interactive talks, as well as getting up close experiences with some of our animals exhibits, such as, In With the Lemurs (on Lemur's island), where our beautiful ring-tailed lemurs will run rings around you.
