ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Escape the urban jungle and head for Whipsnade for the perfect family day out.

Escape on an adventure across acres of beautiful English countryside with fantastic views across the Chiltern Downs and watch lions, tigers, elephants, hippos and giraffes out and about in huge outdoor enclosures. Hop aboard the Jumbo Express train adventure or take a free Safari Bus as you make your way around the scenic Zoo, one of Europe's largest conservation centres.

Don't miss last year's two new exhibits - Cheetah Rock and Rhinos of Nepal. Their ground breaking design, with viewing areas both inside and outside, means that visitors can get closer than ever before to these amazing animals.

New for 2009 check out the Big Five adventure and the regular events timetable throughout the year including daily demonstrations featuring penguins, sea lions and birds of prey.
