Marriage is the ultimate adventure, and there is no better place to start yours than London’s most exciting wedding location. ZSL London Zoo is a romantic alternative to the traditional venue and provides a magical backdrop for your special day.
Our wedding coordinators can be involved as much or as little as you wish, from recommending one of wedding packages or consulting with our Head Chef to create a menu exclusively for you and your guests. They are on hand to assist you all the way from your first visit through to the seamless planning of your most memorable day.
By holding your event at ZSL London Zoo you will be directly contributing to the international conservation charity the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), supporting the global conservation of animals and their habitats.
ZSL London Zoo is a unique and iconic setting for both ceremonies and receptions for 30-300 guests. Two stylish venues, the Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion and the grand Prince Albert Suite, are licensed for civil ceremonies and offer charming outside space to enhance your day.
Situated in the heart of the Zoo, the elegant Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion overlooks its own exhibit – kangaroos, emus and wallabies in their outback enclosure. Bathed in natural light from the 360° windows and offering exquisite sunset views, it is a perfect choice for a beautiful and intimate wedding. Meanwhile, a grand banquet in our charming Prince Albert Suite after welcome drinks on the private rooftop terrace offer flexible and relaxing options for your special day.
There’s no experience that can compare to a reception in one of our animal houses. The ideal way to show off your unique venue, animal house receptions are available when the Zoo closes and can be booked individually or in conjunction with a suite, where the ceremony would be held. Whether you want to enter the enigmatic world of our beautiful tigers or hit the beach with a colony of adorable penguins, we’ve got an amazing setting to suit you and your guests.
A unique animal encounter is a wonderful way to entertain your guests and create memories that will last a lifetime. Add an amazing animal to your guest list from a selection of our friendliest, funniest and most remarkable residents for a meet and greet.
