The London Zoo

Since London Zoo opened in 1828, many leading architects have contributed to the built environment of the Zoo, creating a collection of buildings that includes two Grade I and eight Grade II listed structures.

 

In 1826, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles along with Sir Humphrey Davy founded the Zoological Society of London.

Decimus Burton laid the grounds and housing for the animals in London Zoo. Decimus was an extraordinarily gifted architect and many of the original constructs in the Zoo that still exist are of Burton’s design. He was the Zoo’s official architect from 1826 to 1841. He also designed South Villa, Grove House, St Dunstan’s Lodge and St John’s Lodge in the Park all within a few years.

 

The earliest surviving building in the Zoo, the Clock Tower, was designed by Decimus Burton in 1828, the same year that ZSL received its Royal Charter from George IV. Read More

 

With over 760 animal species, exciting and innovative new exhibits and heritage-listed building almost as famous as their inhabitants, a visit to London Zoo is a great day out. Read More
