London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo. It was opened in London on 27 April 1828, and was originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study. It was eventually opened to the public in 1847. Today it houses a collection of 755 species of animals, with 16,802 individuals, making it one of the largest collections in the United Kingdom. The zoo is sometimes called Regent’s Zoo.
London Zoo is located in Regent’s park, with more than 720 rare and exotic animal species. There are different exhibits such as the Gorilla Kingdom, Rainforest Life and Into Africa. One of the latest exhibits was the Penguin Beach which opened in 2011. Here you can see various Macaroni and Humboldt penguins with underwater viewing areas. Make sure you also go to the feeding tomes so you can be even closer to the animals.
