There’re loads of reasons to be wild about ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. Home to more than 2500 species, a visit to ZSL Whipsnade, can get you close to some of the world’s hairiest, scariest, tallest and smallest animals. Set on 600 acres, in the rolling Chiltern Hills, there’s epic adventure awaiting you at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

See elephants on their daily walk around the Zoo, view majestic rhino in their huge paddock, meet our lion pride, spot the cheetahs as they speed by and don’t forget to look up our lofty giraffes too!

Moving around the vast park of Whipsnade is easy: bring your car, or hop on our Safari Bus, take the Trunk Line land train or walk around. During the summer months embark on a Safari Adventure on the Jumbo Express steam train.

And the UK’s biggest Zoo is closer than you think, less than an hour outside London and under 90 minutes from Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge. With so much to see and do, you’re sure to be wild about Whipsnade!
