ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is located in Bedfordshire, about 9 miles away from Luton. This famous zoo consists of a large number of native, rare and endangered animal species and majority of them are free to walk throughout the park. This zoo is spread across less than 1 square mile but is still visible from miles away from land and air because of a large hill figure called the Whipsnade White Lion that is carved in its perimeter.
