Animal Habitats

We're the UK's number one zoo (and seventh in the world) according to reviewers on TripAdvisor - and it's no mean feat. It's something we've achieved through innovative animal habitats.

Animal wellbeing and visitor experience are our top priorities when we design our animal habitats. And we're constantly working to improve our animal environments through research with our animals and visitors alike.

Our aspiration is always to showcase world-class habitat design - something that can be seen in the newest and most impressive part of the zoo, Islands.

And there are so many immersive areas such as the Butterfly Journey and Fruit Bat Forest where you are able to walk through our animal habitats.
