London Zoo


Zoos, or zoological gardens, exist in many forms all over the world. The first zoo showing wild animals from exotic locations to the public was opened in London Zoo, in 1828.

Zoo now often incorporate landscape immersion, where the animals' natural environment is recreated in their enclosures.

Modern zoos range from safari parks, where visitors drive through vast areas, seeing animals in the open range, to petting or childrens' zoos, where children can hold or stroke domestic and farm animals. Zoos also include aquariums, animal sanctuaries, animal theme parks, bird parks and reptile parks, and there are even butterfly zoos.

Zoo visits are fun, entertaining and educational, so wherever you are, visit your local zoo.
