CUB CAM UPDATE: Watch the moment our gorgeous Sumatran #tiger cubs opened their eyes for the first time! Keepers have been keeping close watch over the duo following their arrival on 27 June and were delighted to see both cubs open their eyes on footage earlier this week.

The pair are coming on leaps and bounds, with both mum Melati and dad Jae Jae playing the perfect doting parents. 
Keepers on cubwatch had a nice surprise when they captured the moment two 10-day-old Sumatran tiger cubs opened their eyes for the very first time.

Named after the British monarch recently featured on our TV screens, the Victoria crowned pigeon is native to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

In July keepers welcomed the arrival of a new chick who can be seen at the Blackburn Pavilion.

After getting grass stuck up her nose, our critically-endangered white-naped mangabey Ziggy underwent specialised treatment to help her.

Learn more about how our team of Zoo vets collaborated with institutes such as the Royal Veterinary College to provide the very best care for her...

ZSL's very own Lucy Hawley is featured in a special exhibition this summer celebrating London's rich history and heritage!

Pictured next to the Zoo's iconic Lubetkin Penguin Pool, Lucy was chosen as one of 60 Londoners to be photographed for the free exhibition 'I Am London' at Central Saint Martins.

We're very excited to announce that two of the world’s rarest ‪#‎tigers‬ have been born at ZSL London Zoo, with keepers capturing their first moments on hidden cameras.

The as-yet unsexed twins were born to seven-year-old Sumatran tigress Melati, on Monday 27 June, after a 108-day pregnancy.

Major city zoo and research centre helping to conserve numerous species in naturalistic habitats.- Google
"Parking spaces great although 14.50 for parking is a bit of a rip off."
"Shows are OK and the prices for ice cream and drinks are a little pricy."

Amazing place for the little ones - you can sign up for a year's membership with your entrance fee taken off the cost. Be sure to check out the timings of when they feed the animals - worth going along to see all the creatures up close. Be sure to check out the butterfly house - stunning!

Love this place. Enclosures seem to focus heavily on making money. I would prefer and more educational and conservation based presentation bit understand it needs to be fun for all. Best tip is get there early. Before opening. M ow what you would like to see and get there before the crowds.

A wonderful day out and so much to do. The staff are very knowledgeable and so happy to help with any questions. The variety of animals and the size of their enclosures is wonderful and looks really good.

Slightly pricey admission tickets. The zoo is nice and has a variety of wild animals, insects and fish. Good place for a family visit with the kids.

Had an excellent few hours here yesterday. I'm not sure why there are quite so many negative reviews of this place - I think some people must come here with unrealistic expectations. Yes, it is small, it doesn't have wide open spaces of a safari park, and there are no elephants, but the zoo doesn't claim to have any of these things. Wide variety of exhibits and everything within easy walking distance, which is great especially if you have young kids. I thought the animals looked happy enough and very well looked after. Tigers and lions particularly impressive. The food from the restaurant was pretty good I thought and reasonably priced, especially when you consider that it's a tourist attraction in Central London. Parking was also free on Sunday near Primrose Hill but if you wanted to park on the street right outside the gates, it was around £5 for 4 hours, which is again very reasonable for London.

. Too much emphasis on squeezing money out of you. . This is expensive. VERY expensive! Check out the prices on line before you go. Then when you do get there, every section has more Pester-Power sales opportunities. Tigers have Fluffy-Toy Tiger shop. Lions have Fluffy-Toy Lions shop. Penguins have Fluffy-Toy Penguin shop. And so on. As well as what must be the World's Largest Concentration of Unsuitable Food for Children everywhere. But the WORST rip-off must be the Fast-Track tickets that we bought on line. We paid extra, but got nothing from it. It says on the printed sheet "Please enter through the Fast track Entrance, but doesn't tell you where it is. So we followed the signs to the Zoo Entrance, got there and were told (a) that the Fast Track entrance was somewhere else, and (b) that there were no queues anyway so not much point going to the Fast-Track entrance. And it was only Fast-Track for entering, not for watching the penguins fed or other shows. We felt suitably ripped off. :-( The Zoo itself was looking very shabby and run down. Peeling paint, video monitors not working, not cared for. The only parts of the Zoo that were in pristine condition, sparkling new paint, were the hundreds of shops and fast-food outlets . . . :-( A family disappointment. .

There's two things that I always enjoy about visiting London Zoo. First and rightly so are the animals, they are well looked after, they never seem stressed and if you catch their behind the scenes show on TV you'll see just how much they love their animals. The second see their buildings, not only does the zoo exhibit some great architecture in its older buildings but shows how far we've come in improving quality of life for captive animals.

For being one of the world's leaders in conservation I expected a little more from this zoo. The historic nature of the buildings and grounds was interesting and I do understand the constraints of having to work around that. It was an enjoyable experience nonetheless.
