The ZSL London Zoo reopened on Monday 12 April, three months after it closed to the public for the third national lockdown.

Eager visitors who secured one of the limited sold-out tickets to the reopening formed a socially-distanced queue to enter the iconic 36-acre park, before safely following one of three carefully mapped out nature routes laid out across the site and enjoying the spring sunshine.

The Zoo is limiting visitors to ensure social distancing and are accepting pre-booked tickets only. A one-way system is in place, with three prescribed routes ensuring guests remain socially-distanced while exploring. Catering outlets are takeaway only, and all payments will be contactless. Indoor exhibits, including the Reptile House and Rainforest Life will remain closed for now.
