Join one of our team on a relaxing guided walk around the Zoo.

This 90 minute walk and talk will be an opportunity to spend time with our experts, getting behind-the-scenes info and occasionally strolling off the beaten track of the Zoo. Each walk is held on a Thursday at 10.30am.

Meet other like-minded Zoo frequenters and breathe in our big green spaces – breathe in and admire the picturesque surroundings - nurturing both body and mind.

Each week's walk will have a theme all of its own:


  • 21 September: Welcome Back Tour - It’s finally time for our Walk of the Week to return. Welcoming back old friends of all species, whilst also meeting some of our newest furry and feathered arrivals! 

  • 28 September: What's in a name? part 2 - A rose by any other name may be just as sweet, but what about a rhino? Join us for part 2 of finding out how some of our most iconic species got their common and scientific names and the hidden meanings they contain. 

  • 5 October: World of water birds - Join us for a friendly walk highlighting the lesser-known water birds that call Whipsnade home.   

  • 12 October: World Animal Day - We celebrate World Animal Day to promote the rights of animals and to raise the standard of animal welfare across the world. Join us to learn about the incredible behavioural science that ZSL scientists are conducting to ensure best practice in animal training and enrichment.  

  • 19 October: Native Species - Whipsnade Zoo’s Trees: the interesting, unusual & extraordinary. 

Joining these walks is free of charge on paid entry to the Zoo. Please arrive early to avoid queues on Zoo entry
