ZSL London Zoo Aquarium
Meet the enigmatic inhabitants of the underwater at ZSL London Zoo's Aquarium, situated on the northern corner of Regent's Park. London Zoo gave the world its first public aquarium in 1853, the current one being built in 1924 and inaugurated by King George V and Queen Mary. Actively involved in several conservation and breeding projects, the aquarium houses some of the rarest and most exotic species of aquatic creatures from different parts of the world. The well-laid out aquarium is divided into three halls, each one a separate eco-system, containing freshwater fish, coral reefs and endangered species respectively. An individually large tank contains giant fish like Catfish, Tambaqui and Pirapitinga that were rescued from untrained owners and are now looked after by the zookeepers. Their website is quite informative for those who want to know more about their collection. You can also call ahead on +44 (0)844 225 1826 for any other inquiries.
I absolutley love all the animals, the whole experince of it is amazing, kids will definately love it. The only problem is that it can be pricey (thats london for ya!) - especially if you have to travel a bit aswell. I would advise people to bring some food of their own. Other than that its loads of fun!
we took our five children to the zoo and had a fabulous time. i didn't realize it would take us a whole day! i wish there would have been more water fountains. and the food wasn't that great. but overall we all had a great time!
Definitely worthwhile ! Every time I visit London, I see the zoo. In fact, I am surprised that London Zoo has not received better ratings. The two small penguins, which arrived hand in hand and stood for photographs were absolutely charming. Warmly recommended and will calm all your nerves !
The zoo was an excellent place to bring my year 4 class. We are currently studying animals and their habitats. The whole day linked beautifully with our curriculum objectives. We had a 30 minute talk and slide show which was very good and stimulating. The staff were friendly and so were the animals! I recommend it. I just might go back this Sunday.
I really enjoyed my visit to London Zoo, there was plenty to see, ranging from all types of monkeys to birds of pray to snakes and reptiles not to mention the bigger animals such as lions through and geraffs to otters, bit pricy but thats London, you have to go to london zoo for the experience and not be bothered about the cost!!
i really enjoyed the atmosphere of the zoo because i like when animals are in my envirment for the hole holiday i didnt shut-up about the zoo !! after seeing the zoo for the first time i now would of loved if id seen it sooner and id advise other people to go there !!!!
