London in winter
As the nights are drawing in, and the air turning a little colder, while it might be time for scarves and gloves while you’re out and about in London, there’s a HOT secret hidden away in the heart of Regent’s Park, this autumn, to warm your cockles.
Let us whisk you away - step into the tropics, right in the heart of London this October Half Term.
Our desert island
Enter a land of giants and meet one of our BIGGEST trio in their cosy new home. Dolly, Polly and Priscilla, our whopping Galápagos tortoises, raced their way across the Zoo to new digs, earlier this year. Brand new for October, you’ll find them in their climate-controlled Giants of the Galápagos exhibit, over at Barclay Court.
The UK’s largest living rainforest, at the heart of London Zoo, is abuzz with activity and a hot stop on your tropical walking tour. In amongst the lush equatorial vegetation, there’s something to spot at every turn. With snuggly sloths, tree-top tamanduas and primates aplenty hopping about all around you, there’s no better place to bring a ray of sunshine to greyer days.
Need a little more? Venture onto our rainforest floor and feed the monkeys with our exclusive Meet The Monkeys experience.
Cruise amongst the cutest creatures of the creepy-crawly kingdom with a wander through our steamy Butterfly Paradise. Bursting with colourful flora and fauna at every turn, step in from the cold this Half Term to our heated biome with vibrant butterflies floating through the air all around you.
Escape it all and take a dive beneath our tropical seas. Delve into our new and immersive corals exhibit at the heart of Tiny Giants - jam-packed with intriguing invertebrates from around the globe, these mighty miniature heroes are driving our global ecosystem in ways you’d never believe. And all for you to see whilst sheltered from the autumnal gloom.
So what are you waiting for? With sheltered indoor eateries boasting delicious barista specials for the grown-ups, London Zoo really does have you covered this autumn Half Term.
