Free with Zoo admission

This event is fully accessible.

At London Zoo, we offer dates throughout the year where we feature several British Sign Language-interpreted tours and talks over the course of the day.

Led by Deaf presenter John Wilson, discover the amazing animals at London Zoo and learn about ZSL’s global conservation work. The tour route may change each month so that you can experience a different side of the Zoo on each visit!

Tours start at the large map in Barclay Court, in front of the Terrace Restaurant and gift shop. The Zoo opens from 10 am every day, and we recommend arriving at the Zoo 15 to 30 minutes earlier than the start of the tour so you have time to reach the meeting point from the entrance.

Dates and Times

Tours are run on selected dates throughout the year at 11:15 am and 2:15 pm.
