ZSL’s Prince Philip Zoological Library and Archives contains a unique collection of resources on zoology and animal conservation and is one of the oldest and largest libraries of its kind.

Founded in 1826, ZSL is nearing its 200 year anniversary and as a result has a library and archive collection filled with beautiful, unique, and often strange, material relating to the subjects of zoology and animal conservation.

On this tour we aim to bring ZSL’s history to life by introducing you to some of the oldest items in our care (such as zoology books from the 16th century), artwork based on some of our earliest inhabitants, archives relating to some of our most memorable historic events, and much more besides.

Accessibility: ZSL Library is accessed via two flights of stairs. If you would like to attend but this would cause you a particular issue, please let us know so we can consider if there are any reasonable adjustments we can make for you by contacting
