Penguins and giraffes and meerkats…oh my! Zoos are fun anywhere, but the London Zoo is great because it’s surrounded by the city and easily accessible. London’s zoo does have the usual lions, tigers, and bears, plus a plethora of other exciting creatures.
The London Zoo is located on the northeast side of Regent’s Park, which gave us a pleasant walk from the Tube station. I’d recommend getting of at the Baker Street station and walking through the park–-a two-for-one deal! The zoo itself is shaped like a large triangle, And if you follow the paths, it make a convenient exit.
The buildings and greenery at the London Zoo are fantastic. Giant aquariums give fantastic views of both fish and reptiles, from komodo dragons to tiny seahorses. There were no children pushing or shoving here, because everyone had enough room to view all of the animals. Most of the exhibits are outdoors, and the flowers and trees spread throughout make walking through a pleasant experience.
The two most fascinating exhibits to me were the penguins and the meerkats. The penguin exhibit was set up so you could look at it from three sides, and they had plenty of toys and slides to play with. The meerkats were just incredibly active and kept popping in and out of their houses. The London Zoo also house many other great animals, like tapirs, gorillas, hippopotamus, and macaws.
The ticket-sellers will try to push you to purchase a guidebooks, but it is expensive and not worth it. Simply visit the London Zoo website for all of the information you need!

I don't remember the cost of admission, but I do remember it being surprisingly expensive. This is compared to Houston Zoo, which is a great zoo, and, at the time of my last visit cost $5 for admission.
