Is the London Zoo annual pass worth it?

I'm thinking about getting one, but it is quite a lot. I'm worried that we will used it once or twice and then not want to go again. I'd love to know if you've had one, and how you ended up using it.

We had one a couple of years ago and I found it worthwhile even though we love in South London, the best part of an hour away. I didn't buy one for DH, just me and the DCs, which kept the cost down, and we went whenever we had a free day and nothing to do. They have us some half priced guest passes as well which we used to take the DPILs.

Do investigate whether you can get them cheaper with Nectar/Tesco points.

Completely worth it. The fact that you don't have to queue is enough for me. We've also found that we enjoy our visits more as there is no pressure to see everything and stay all day. We now pop in for an hour or two of a morning - its a great way to start the day.

We've had membership for seven years now. Except we live near Whipsnade Zoo and mostly use that one.

I believe if you get membership you can use both zoos.

With under 10s, I would totally recommend it.

Thanks all, I think we're going to get one for the Summer hols and I've heard its handy for seeing Santa at the zoo. Does anyone drive to Whipsnade from central London, how long does it take?

We drive there probably once a year and it takes around 45 mins from Archway.

Is the membership pass restricted to a specific name? If we want to go sometimes ourselves with the children, and sometimes have the nanny take them (during weekdays at school breaks), can we share the same annual pass? .There's no option for 3 adults/2 children from what I can see, only up to 2 adults. Does it work if the (max 2) adults are not the same every time?

I bought an annual pass in September for me and the kids. It was £180 for 1 adult and 4 children. For me it's worth every penny. I go at least once per month and the kids (age 2 & 5) aren't bored of it yet.

You can use both London Zoo and Whipsnade Zoo. Whipsnade Zoo is around 40 min from me in North West London.

The membership card has your photo so yes it is restricted for all members in the group including children.
