Set in 600 acres of panoramic scenery in the rolling Chiltern Hills, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is a big day out on an altogether different scale. Explore the sights, smells and sounds of the UK’s biggest zoo and meet some of the biggest animals on the planet.
Meet our jumbo-sized elephants, visit the majestic rhino in their huge paddock and pay a visit to animal royalty with our majestic African Lions. And our exciting new Giraffe Heights exhibit, which includes a revamped barn and a nine foot high viewing platform, will bring you face-to-face with Whipsnade’s giraffes for the very first time. You’ll discover everything is bigger and better at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
Come and enjoy our daily events- catch a fishy feeding time with our Peckish Penguins; see our sea lions jump, swim & frolic in the splashzone at our fantastic Sealion Splash; go elephant crazy with the popular Elephantastic!
