We both had a full nights sleep and a lazy start to the day. Decided to walk the 20 minutes from where we are staying to the London Zoo.
James has never seen a gorilla before so we were thrilled to see them up nice and close. The zoo seems to be very animal friendly. Disappointingly we had heard about an enormous elephant park, but it is not at the London zoo you have to travel quite some distance and I don't think we will be able to go.
We were pleased we didn't pay to go the butterfly house at the Natural History Museum because there is a lovely one at the zoo for no extra cost.
Other highlights were a great aquarium, and lots of accesible enclosures where you walk amongst the animals with no fence in between, e.g the monkeys and aviarys.
Got lots of cool photos which T & S will assist me with tomorrow night.
