A Day at London Zoo

We were invited to the Xeno toy launch at London Zoo and after the launch we spent the day wandering around the Zoo. It’s somewhere I hadn’t been since I was very small and somewhere I had wanted an excuse to visit. I didn’t realise that London Zoo has a huge car park and is outside of the congestion charging zone so it made sense for us to drive rather than struggle with two children and a pushchair on the train – Only £14.50 for parking for the day too – a great price for a day’s parking in central London.

What were our first impressions of London Zoo?

London Zoo is so much bigger than I remembered with so much green space and big, natural enclosures. There were so many animals to see with the main attractions being lions, tigers, penguins and gorillas. LP was in her element, although exhausted, she spent most of the day on her Daddy’s shoulders and loved the view point.

As expected, London Zoo was fairly busy as it was school holidays but we managed to see all the animals, found somewhere quiet to sit and eat lunch and found toilets dotted all around the zoo. For a zoo that has been around for so long London Zoo is really lovely to visit, well planned out, clean and accessible. We’ll definitely be going back again in the future!

    I’m with you on the snot! The whole thing looks a bit weird if you ask me but I bet kids will love them! The zoo looks like a lot of fun though – I went there about five years ago and once when I was little. I love a good zoo 🙂
