Why London Zoo is Worth a Visit

Posted on 25 Oct 2016 by Anna Scott
It’s been in the news a bit recently for not entirely positive reasons, if you can a call a roaming gorilla with a penchant for blackcurrant squash a not entirely positive reason. And even though this might have been slightly alarming for those there at the time, we think everyone needs reminding about the good work London Zoo does as well as what a great day out it makes for family members of all ages, especially when you can save on entry using London Zoo promo codes. And that’s not all – we’ve got suggestions for other animal-themed days out of you’re not that close to the capital…


Not Just a Visitor Attraction

London Zoo conservation projectsEvery time you visit London Zoo, your money doesn’t just go towards the upkeep of the park and its many inhabitants, as good a cause as this is in its own right. Those pounds also go straight to the Zoological Society of London, the charity that runs London Zoo along with its sister park, Whipsnade Zoo. Visiting London Zoo doesn’t limit their spending to the capital – ZSL is an international charity and their funds go towards helping many different wildlife and conservation projects around the world including promoting sustainable wildlife in local communities across Africa, promoting sustainable palm oil initiatives in Indonesia and working to protect threatened species in China.


Visit More and Save More

Using London Zoo promo codes, you can find out how to save on annual membership that not only gets you unlimited entry to London Zoo but also Whipsnade Zoo too if you fancy venturing further afield. And don’t worry about running out of things to see because there’s plenty to pack into multiple visits including otter feeding, live talks at the meerkat and mongoose enclosures and displays at the London Zoo Penguin Beach. Just keep an eye on your stash of blackcurrant squash when you go and visit the gorillas.


Nationwide Animal Experiences

You don’t have to live in the south east to get good value on your animal-themed days out, and as well as simply visiting zoo and safari parks, thanks to the wonders of the internet, these days you can book a more up close and personal animal encounter. No, this doesn’t involve coming face-to-face with a gorilla on a sugar high, but rather organising a behind the scenes tour or zookeeper experience, either as a gift for that animal lover in your life, or yourself. Virgin Experience Days discount codes have a special offer available for a limited time only that gets you an extra 15% off your booking, and with this you can organise a ‘Meet the Meerkats’ Experience at Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire, the opportunity to shadow a zookeeper at Dartmoor Zoo and a big cat encounter in Kent. Or perhaps all three if you want the full animal experience.

And for those of you who are a bit further up north, we can point you in the direction of some very handy Flamingo Land discount vouchers right now. You can get discounted entry to the Yorkshire zoo and theme park when you book your tickets online in advance including £10 weekday tickets or 2 tickets for the price of 1.


So there you go – not only some very good reasons why London Zoo is worth a visit but also some extra motivation to get you learning more about animals up and down the country.
