Meet Santa and Mrs Claus and help out the elves with lots of animal-themed festive fun during The Magic of Christmas at ZSL London Zoo.

Enter the zoo before opening time to secure a place at the table for a VIP Breakfast with Mrs Claus before the elves sneak you in for an unforgettable experience, meeting the man himself in Santa’s Grotto. You might even receive a small gift if you’ve been good this year! 

Then, make family memories as the kids become Santa’s little helpers on a Festive Family Trail, discovering more about the zoo’s inhabitants and collecting clues on their ideal gifts – before reporting back to Mrs Claus.  

See the zoo's animals feasting on their own Christmas treats ahead of the big day. But there’s plenty for you to tuck into too... Indulge in sweet treats from the Sensory Sweet Shop and make your way through a forest of candy canes, clouds of candy floss and marshmallow meadows. 

And the fun doesn’t stop there, with rides to enjoy for all ages, including carousels and swing boats. 

All activities this Christmas at ZSL London Zoo adhere to the latest coronavirus safety guidelines and requirements, ensuring a safe and fun day out for all the family.
