Were going to the zoo…

October 1, 2012

How about you? Sorry I couldn’t resist!

This weekend I made a trip to London Zoo, it was a brilliant day for going, sunny and not too cold as the Autumn chill creeps in. Being in London I have never actually been to London Zoo before so I was quite excited. I absolutely love going to see the animals and this visit didn’t disappoint, apart from there being no tigers, but they had been moved to another Zoo whilst they rebuild a new home for them, which looks like its going to be fab!

The Zoo is just up from Regents Park and Primrose Hill, such an idyllic location, I like looking at all the big houses around that area.

Taking my Zoo map as we got in, I realised it is pretty huge, so a plan was needed. First port of call was towards the meerkats who I kept expecting to see wearing dressing gowns and screaming ‘compare the meerkat’ at me. In this part of the Zoo there was also otters, a bat house and reindeers.



 I really wanted to see the Penguin Beach and see them getting fed so before lunch we went to Penguin beach which is pretty big and lots of penguins!

 There is a rainforest which is inside and super hot! Full of monkeys, sloths and birds. It was quite cute to see a monkey and sloth looking after each other. I never realised that pelicans were so huge, we saw them fighting over some food during feeding time.

There are so many animals in the Zoo I couldn’t possibly write about them all, but some of my favourites were the giraffes. I had never seen one before so pretty amazing. 


It was such a fun day out and I’d recommend going for something a little different to do.
