2for1 tickets for London Zoo
Member Name: stormin_nomin
Advantages: Great 2for1 offer, lots of animals to see, great for adults as well as children
Disadvantages: did not see any big cats?
I went to London Zoo last week when it was pouring down with rain! That didn't stop us from having a great time!
When it was really chucking it down, we went around the indoor aquarium and reptile house to escape the heavy rain. There was a diverse range of species in both sections and it took us a good 1.5 - 2 hours to have a good look at all of the animals in just those 2 sections.
When the rain calmed down a bit and was just drizzling, we made our way round the rest of the zoo. We had expected the animals to be cowering away from the rain but were surprised to find the primates climbing around and playing. The animals that did escape the rain went into their pens, which can be viewed through indoor viewing areas.
I would highly recommend watching the otters at feeding time! Highly amusing!
We travelled to the zoo by national rail and used the 2 for 1 deal. It cost £18.50 for one adult ticket and got the other one free. You can pick up a 2for1 deals brochure from most national rail stations or download a free coupon on their website.
The information brochure recommended that you allow 4 hours for your visit but we spent 5 hours at London Zoo and felt rushed to cram in as much as we could before it closed. My advice is to allow the whole day to get the most out of it!
Summary: Set out earlier to allow for more time to see the whole zoo. 4 hours is minimum.
