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 emphasis is on learning about how the animals live in near-as-possble natural habitats, with viewing huts providing exceptional views through glass walls. There are also daily shows where you can watch feeding time and find out more about the zoo's exotic beasts. The ZSL Animal Photography Prize Exhibition runs at the zoo until July 1, featuring impressive images of animals around the world.
