ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Run by the team behind London Zoo and set in 600 acres of Bedfordshire parkland with views across the Chilterns, Whipsnade offers a huge variety of animals including all the favourites – chimps, lions, elephants, camels, zebras, hippos and giraffes.

The ZSL Animal Photography Prize Exhibition runs at the zoo until July 1, featuring impressive images of animals around the world.
