If you’re a family of animal lovers who can’t get enough of four-, two- and no-legged beasts, then head over to Whipsnade - the biggest zoo in the UK for a day of fun packed with all varieties of animal.  


With more than 3,800 species, the variety of animals is nearly as wide as the 600 acres of stunning scenery they occupy. 


If you like lions, fantastic flying bird demonstrations and eating breakfast with lemurs, then book your tickets now. 


Whipsnade Zoo gets a big thumbs up from Kidadlers. Clare says, "Whipsnade is great because it's so big, that even when it's busy, it doesn't feel crowded. Lovely for the kids to scoot around - beautiful views, lots of fresh air! Have a great time."

If it's dry I'd choose Whipsnade which is more wild (also has chimpanzees, elephants and rhinos which London zoo doesn't).

We stayed at whipsnade a couple of years ago, it’s little wooden lodges then the bathroom is in a separate block. You get to do some twilight tours after the zoo closes, and you can hear the lions roaring to wake you up in the morning. We enjoyed it!

There's a bus which takes you round so I’d say no. You can take scooters too if that helps. A buggy for stuff is useful as well. Enjoy. We’re members with a 2 and 4 yr old and I’ve only driven on stupidly cold days.
