We've got everything you need for a jam-packed fun family day out this Christmas!Fun festive family trail
Santa’s arrived early to London Zoo to do some research on what the animals would like for Christmas. But he’ll need your help, because with over 18,000 animals there’s far too much for just him and his elves to manage. Head out across the Zoo gathering information along the way, before finishing up at the polar post box where you can send off your trail card to Santa and help to make sure all the animals get the perfect present this Christmas!

Ssshhhhh…. We’ve heard a rumour he might drop in to the zoo for a break from all the present wrapping and sleigh packing, so keep your eyes peeled for Santa! If you are lucky enough you might just spot him!*Traditional carousel and seasonal treats^
