This Saturday, London Zoo will launch its Spring Family Festival.
Running for a week (when the forecast is promising the most beautiful weather), the event will offer lots of family-friendly activities including animal talks, bushcraft workshops, interactive games, stories and arts and crafts.
There will be something for children of all ages, with baby sensory sessions, and activities for toddlers, primary and secondary age children.
Entry is free with your zoo ticket, just be sure to secure your session places upon arrival at the welcome desk.
London Zoo, which spans a huge 36 acres and is home to over 19,000 animals, opened in 1847. Its most famous resident was Winnie the bear, an enchantingly tame and gentle creature who captured the hearts of AA Milne and his son, Christopher Robin, and became immortalised in Milne’s series of Winnie-the-Pooh books.
London Zoo a beautiful place to explore, especially on a sunny day. Situated in Regent’s Park, it’s near to the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Madame Tussauds, should you wish to combine visits.
