History of the attraction
Opened to the public in 1847 London Zoo is the oldest scientific zoo in the world and leads the world in conservation and international breeding programmes. It was also the first one to open a separate reptile house and aquarium, and contains many listed structures including the penguin pool and the Round House gorilla enclosure which was the first modernist buildings in Britain.
Due to public concerns about animals held in captivity the zoo very nearly closed in 1991 but with a surge in public support it was able to reorganize and carry out much needed renovation work and has enjoyed large visitor numbers ever since.
The word gorilla stems from a Greek word meaning tribe of hairy women. A.A Milne wrote the Winnie the Pooh books after visiting the zoo with his son Christopher Robin who was very taken with a black bear called Winnipeg.
