Event Details

£5 members/£7 non-members

The 1.2 million modern annual visitors to London Zoo today, regardless of extensive modernisation, visit a zoological garden laid out within original boundaries of the early 19th century, amidst the harmonious surrounds of Regent’s Park. The footprint of Decimus Burton’s designs, despite the demolition of many of his buildings, shaped the character of both London Zoo and zoological gardens throughout the world. Oliver Flory will focus on the topography and the design of the early gardens up to the year 1837 and the construction of Burton’s giraffe house, perhaps the most famous zoo building in the world.

The talk starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
