Advantages: Souvenirs & Gitfts very reasonable.
Disadvantages: Perhaps needs more "larger" animals
I have to say I was a little disappointed by London Zoo. I have been brought up with regular trips to Chester Zoo and always wanted to visit London Zoo. So this August my children & I had the opportunity to go there. Travelling to London Zoo was very easy by bus. The Bus stopped right by the side of the zoo - so just a short walk. It was a boling hot day as well - so hoped for not too much walking with 3 young children. To me there didn't seem to be many animals??! Or maybe we missed them. There were lots of insects and smaller animals - but not many tigers & lions & gorillas etc. I dont think we saw any elephants either??!?! One thing I would say that items in the gift shops were very reasonable (for a zoo!!) We bought a number of presents and none of them broke the bank! We did have a lovely day out - and maybe I should visit Chester zoo again soon to compare.
Summary: An enjoyable day
