With the school holidays almost over, why not head over to ZSL London Zoo where kids of all ages can enjoy a Summer Family Festival which runs from Friday 30 August to Sunday 1 September.
At no extra cost to a standard Zoo ticket, experience fantastical storytelling sessions, creative arts and crafts and a chance to get young brains back into gear with a unique Zoo gameshow. Little ones can also join in the fun with a Teddy Bears’ Picnic, face painting with biodegradable glitter and rides on a traditional carousel.
Families will enjoy ZSL’s newly-opened Animal Adventure children’s zoo where they can discover eagle owls and porcupines, mongooses and meerkats, plus plenty more. The immersive new exhibit features specially designed low barriers so that young animal fans feel like they’re right in the heart of the action. There’s also a new play area and water splash zone making it the ultimate zoo experience for young pups.
Let your kids climb aboard the hot air balloon or slide down HMS Beagle and be transported to animal kingdoms around the world, before cooling down in the Splash Zone – conveniently situated next to the Peckish Parrot café.
Little ones can also get hands on with Zoo it Yourself where they will be transformed into zookeepers, gardeners, builders, and vets as part of the interactive experience – discovering exactly what goes into creating the perfect home for the Zoo’s furry, feathery and four-legged residents.
