ZSL London Zoo
The ZSL London Zoo has occupied the northeastern corner of Regent's Park since 1828. One of the most famous zoos in the world, it contains over 720 different species of animals, and the aviary is a firm favorite. B.U.G.S. (Biodiversity Underpinning Global Survival) illustrates the bio-diversity in ecosystems as well as species. Locusts, field crickets and sea horses are among the many species displayed. This fun education exhibit is aimed at all age groups. Hours of operation vary according to season. Check website for more details.
The animals were not really out that much, and there was not much to see.
I did go out of peak season - November - but you would have thought being such a huge place that charges entry would cater fo this a little better.
Definitely worthwhile ! Every time I visit London, I see the zoo. In fact, I am surprised that London Zoo has not received better ratings. The two small penguins, which arrived hand in hand and stood for photographs were absolutely charming. Warmly recommended and will calm all your nerves !
The first time I went to the London Zoo was in 1974, my mother talked so much about it. She grow up a few blocks from it. I couldn't wait to see it and it was as good as she told me it was. I went again last year 2003 and it was such a disappointment, there wasn't much to see, what happened to the best Zoo in the world? Over 3/4 of it is gone, don't waste your time in going.
