London Zoo's Zoonormous Egg Hunt!

Eggs are everywhere at Easter, but nothing quite like this! Come and celebrate the incredible egg-laying creatures at London Zoo including reptiles, birds, fish and butterflies, by taking part in the Zoonormous Egg Hunt!

The free* family trail will guide you around the Zoo where eggs of all sizes and colours are waiting to be discovered, while learning about egg-ceptional species along the way. Solve the clues at each checkpoint to crack the code, revealing the Golden Egg in a special, hidden location. Successful egg-splorers will be rewarded with a tasty treat!

Along with Easter crafts and over 10,000 amazing animals, you’ll be all set for an egg-cellent day out!


Gold members, Fellows, and Patrons were able to join us for an exclusive early opening on Saturday 30 March. There was no need to pre-book, all you needed to do was show your Gold member, Fellow or Patron card at the gates between 9:00-9:30am.

This is an accessible event. Find out more about accessibility below. 

* Valid ZSL membership or Zoo admission ticket required.

  • The trail is fully accessible to all. 
  • Large print trail cards are available at the tipi on the main lawn. On Wednesdays, these will be readily available and on other days, they are available on request. 
  • Trays and/or wheelchair accessible benches are available for those who are unable to sit at craft tables. 
  • Following feedback, we have designated Wednesdays during this event as accessible days. As part of this, on 3 and 10 April we will run quiet sessions at 11.30-12.00 & 15.00-15.30 in the activity cove at the end of the trail. These will have quieter music, lights turned on and a managed capacity.
