There are over 750 species in the zoo and I feel like I saw nearly all of them! I walked around the entire zoo, was able to pet a few friendly animals in the kiddy zoo, watched three different shows on various animals and even saw the Reptile House where a scene from the first Harry Potter film was shot. My favorite show was the penguin show where you learned a lot about the black and white birds and was able to see them being fed dozens and dozens of fish. My only complaint for the day was the horrible food in the zoo restaurant. I guess I should have guessed it wouldn’t gourmet, but it was just awful. I tossed it in the bin after just a few bites and had an ice cream bar instead. If I ever decided to go back to the zoo, or recommend it to someone else, I would suggest you pack a picnic lunch instead of buying the over-priced food they sell there. There are plenty of benches and picnic tables for people to sit, so a packed lunch would be the way to go.
Today is our last day here in London and it will be sad to say good-bye. But I’m thrilled to get home to my little Willow and definitely won’t mind sleeping in my own bed again. We fly home tomorrow morning but I’m optimistic we’ll be back soon enough ;) Cheers for now!
