ZSL Whipsnade Zoo tickets

Gate Prices Adult £22.90
Child (3-15) £16.60

Visit lots of animals and learn all about wildlife at the biggest zoo in the UK, the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, in Bedfordshire.

You’ll get to see thousands of animals, including lions, tigers, elephants, zebra, playful chimpanzees, rhinos, brown bears, penguins, lemurs, and more. The Whipsnade Zoo is very large, giving the animals lots of room to roam around. Visitors can choose to walk, use the park’s ‘Jumbo Express’ train, or drive their own cars (for an additional fee) from exhibit to exhibit. The ‘Passage through Asia’ exhibit features no barriers between you and animals, so you can either hop on the bus or even drive through in your car, safari-style.

Exhibit highlights include:

  • Daily Animal Talks and Live Demonstrations: watch the zoo keepers interact with sea lions, brown bears, elephants, and other animals in their habitats.
  • Giraffe Heights: come face-to-face with the tallest mammals in the world at the Giraffe platform, a raised enclosure that lets you get close to eye level with the giraffes
  • Butterfly House: walk through an immersive, enclosed habitat of over 30 species of butterflies from around the world in the Butterfly House, one of the largest butterfly biomes in the UK
  • Hullabazoo Farm: kids can pet and interact with the zoo’s farmyard friends, including miniature donkeys, a pig, baby chicks, guinea pigs, a family of pygmy goats, sheep, lambs, and more
  • Cheetah Rock: get up close to cheetahs, the fastest land animals, and compare your running speed against theirs
  • And more
