ZSL London Zoo is an oasis in the heart of the capital with over 20,000 amazing animals to discover. The popular attraction wants as many people as possible to be able to enjoy a brilliant day out with them, to benefit from the amazing animals who live at the zoo.
Help for Households
To help people who might find cost or other challenges a barrier to visiting ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, their Community Access Scheme provides discounted tickets priced from as little as £3 per person.
£3 London Zoo Tickets
ZSL London Zoo is aware of how hard things are for many families on low incomes right now, and they want to do what we can to help.
As part of their Community Access Scheme, you can now buy reduced-price tickets for ZSL London Zoo online from as little as £3 per person if you are receiving Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support or Jobseeker’s Allowance.
The £3 tickets are available for the whole family (under 3’s go free).
What You Need To Do
You’ll need to bring your proof of benefit letter with you to the zoo when you buy your tickets from the friendly staff at the admissions gate (this can be an electronic copy if you prefer). Unfortunately, ZSL London Zoo is unable to issue discounted tickets unless you are able to show one of the above documents (per household) as proof of eligibility.
For Families with Disability Benefits
The ZSL Community Access Scheme also provides reduced-price tickets (£6.50 per person) to people that have additional needs or disabilities. The attraction is working through carefully selected organisations to issue these tickets.
ZSL London Zoo
The attraction opened on 27th April 1828 when it was originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study. The popular attraction did not open to the public until 1847. ZSL London Zoo (an abbreviation of Zoological Society of London) is the Worlds oldest scientific zoo. Set in leafy Regent’s Park amid heritage-listed buildings and beautiful gardens, ZSL London Zoo is an oasis in the heart of the capital with over 20,000 amazing animals to discover.
