Time Out Says

London Zoo is the only place in the capital where you can meet Santa plus penguins, otters, tigers, zebras and a whole menagerie of other animals this December. The big guy and his elves need some help asking all the critters what they want for Christmas, so kids can head off on a festive trail to gather information and then send a postcard to Father C to make sure each animal gets a present they’ll love. An audience with the man in red in his grotto will cost extra (from £13.50 per child) and he’s only available on December 4, 5 and 11 to 24 (he’s a busy dude at this time of year). But the zoo’s other seasonal attractions – including the Sensory Sweet Shop, full of candy floss clouds, a marshmallow meadow and a forest of candy canes – will be open through to January.
