Skip the Line: London Zoo Tickets

London Zoo: Jae Jae Tiger

Don’t spend your time in London waiting in line! With your skip-the-line pass to the ZSL London Zoo, enjoy instant access to this world-class site that sees over one million visitors per year. Upon entering, plot your itinerary through the diverse complex. With more than 20 unique habitats and 800 species of animals to view, as well as a schedule of exciting animal-themed activities throughout the day, there’s a fun attraction for every visitor at the world’s oldest scientific zoo! 

Just inside the entrance, you can see acclaimed Gorilla Kingdom exhibit. Observe the gorillas and monkeys eating, playing and interacting in a lush simulated rainforest. Continue on the Tiger Territory, a recently updated habitat that mimics the natural environment of the Sumatran tiger. Get an up close look at the endangered species, including the regal Jae Jae and Melati, as well as their three baby cubs. 

Crossing over into Africa, witness majestic giraffes, African hunting dogs and zebra from the elevated viewing platform. Don’t miss the slow and sinister komodo dragon in its lair or the giant Galapagos tortoise, the giant species hailing from the islands where Darwin researched his theory of evolution. Darwin enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Blackburn Pavilion to hear more about the finches used in the ground-breaking study by Darwin and John Gould.

Whatever route you take, carve out some quality time for Penguin Beach. Home to around 200 Macaroni and Humboldt penguins, this vibrant exhibit includes a pool with underwater viewing areas and a demonstration area to view live feedings. Great fun for everyone!

Everyone must do this! It's one of the most famous zoos in the world and a great day out. There is plenty of space to walk around or enjoy a coffee or ice cream. The animals all seem very happy and well looked after. I'd recommend going on a weekday as it would be less crowded, but since it's so big, I don't think there is ever a problem of waiting in queues to see any of the animals.

We really enjoyed this as there was lots of animals to see and my son is obsesssed with animals so he was delighted to go. There was a good sized shop at the end to buy some souvenirs. The only thing was the restaurant there was very busy we had to leave cos we could not get a seat so if u want to eat there i would go early as in before lunchtime. They are building another restuarent but that won't be finished for a few months yet.

The zoo was great, but we didn't ned the jump to the front pass. There was no line. The walking with lemurs was awesome. I really enjoyed it!

We wasted our money buying Skip the Line tickets, as the zoo was so quiet on the day that we didn't wait in line at all (despite the weather being sunny). The zoo itself was a nice place to visit though, with interesting attractions and not-unbearable crowds. The rainforest walk was amazing; a zookeeper was actually walking an anteater among the visitors, and letting it explore on its own. The gorillas were brilliant and fun to watch as well. You'd probably need less than two hours to make your way through if you don't have kids with you.
