One of my birthday presents from Joel was a trip to zsl London zoo. Despite having lived in London for almost 7 years, I had never been to the zoo before, and was pretty exited to see it.
The verdict? It was nice. We had a great day out, and it wasn’t too busy as the school holidays are over. It is a nice park to wander around, and we spend most of the afternoon there. On the down side It was smaller than I expected, and I was quite disappointed by the fact that they don’t have elephants (I LOVE elephants), bears, hippos or rhinos. And only one tiger (which was a little disappointing considering as they have a brand new area called ‘Tiger Territory’). The animals looked happy and very healthy though, which is something I’m always worried about when going to a zoo. Also, it’s advisable to bring lunch with you, as the prices are, as could be expected, pretty high. As in £5 for a tomato and cheese baguette. Or £10 for a small portion of Fish and Chips.
After the zoo we walked to Camden via Regent’s Canal, which is always lovely, and very recommendable! Lots of spectacular looking house boats, book sale, etc.
