Meet Santa at ZSL London Zoo

Sunday 17 – Sunday 24 December 2017

Sprinkle some extra magic over the festive season this year  by journeying through the animal kingdom to Meet Santa at ZSL London Zoo.  

From Sunday 17 – Sunday 24 December, children can visit Santa’s grotto in the heart of the Zoo, where they can make Christmas cards and decorations with Mrs Claus, join in a jolly sing-along with Santa’s helpers and take home a festive family portrait and special gift.  

Dashing through the Zoo’s very own fairy-lit winter wonderland, little ones can also visit the elf workshop, where they can help make Christmas stockings for some of the Zoo’s animals to enjoy.

ZSL London Zoo is also hosting an extra special VIP Meet Santa experience: from Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 December, guests will get exclusive access to the Zoo before it opens to the public. They’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast with Mrs Claus at the Zoo’s Terrace Restaurant, before being whisked away by helpful elves to Meet Santa and help feed his herd of reindeer.

 After sharing their Christmas wishes with Santa himself, families can enjoy the rest of their very merry day exploring the Zoo and discovering more about the hundreds of species that call it home, including other yuletide animals like donkeys, camels and penguins.  

Funds raised from Meet Santa will help international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society of London) continue its work for wildlife around the world – to ensure no one has to imagine a world without wildlife.
