Candidly, London Zoo is not the cheapest of London’s venues to visit, but during the tube strike, it’ll be somewhat cheaper as they are offering a third off the cost of entry.

You can’t book online as the offer is only for tickets bought on the day – and to get the discount, you only need to say “strike offer” at the gates when paying for tickets, and they will apply a 35% discount to the entry price.

Standard entry for an adult would usually be £33, so during the tube strike, it will cost just £22 to visit. Standard entry for a child would usually be £23.10, so during the tube strike, it will cost just £15.40 to visit.

The offer is valid from Monday 8th to Thursday 11th January only.


Obviously, you need to get to London Zoo, which will be harder due to the tube strike, which is why they’re offering the deal in the first place, as the zoo will be quieter than normal this week. Depending on your point of view about crowds, it might make this week an even better one to visit.

For people on Universal Credit

If you’re currently receiving Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support or Jobseeker’s Allowance — then there is an ongoing offer for you to claim at any time.

Entry for those tickets of £5 for adults and £3 for accompanied children and must be booked online in advance as there are limited tickets available. That’s an ongoing offer that’s not tied to the tube strike, but worth highlighting in case it’s of use to people.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
