    London Zoo is slowly getting better. It's trying to make the most of what is, after all, an inner city and relatively small site. So if you visit, accept the fact that, for example, you'll see no more than two tigers, two lions, two gorillas and none of the really big beasts because there just isn't the space. However, there's enough well-curated animals to see and some interesting new exhibits to keep you occupied for 3-4 hours. Unfortunately, the old lion terraces stand empty and forlorn, the old beautiful penguin pool is a rather pathetic water feature (its Penguin Beach replacement is excellent). Worst for me was the giraffe enclosure which is just a patch of asphalt. They've removed any greenery and the viewing/feeding tower, and the space left can't be good for these amazing animals. So there's still much work to be done.

    Haven’t been here for over 20 years, plenty to see with a one way system inplace, not just the Animals here there’s swings, climbing frames, a helicopter to sit in as well as an old fire engine so plenty of things to do. Also a Costa coffee machine here£2 good value.

    Firstly, let's put this into persepctive. 'Community' zoo's are rare. To find one in a gem of a park is even rarer. For it to cost less than £10 for a family of 3 is even rarer still!

    It's a must visit because it is so unique. The animal selection is 'ok' but broadly don't expect anything more substantial than birds, rodents and a couple of nice oddities e.g. a porcupine! It is always quiet.

    This place is tiny...arguably perfect for small children. Plan to spend 45 mins or so in the zoo itself, a little more if you like animal watching. There will be the odd empty cage and the place is fairly rundown but...

    It's a 'must go' for the experience and uniqueness of the whole thing. The cafe next door is also a welcome addition. Parking is a nightmare...so be prepared to walk for 5 minutes or so.

    Just go and experience it for yourself.

    Visiting London Zoo for a family day out, became disappointing a run down zoo, construction work going on “not advertised “ animal exhibits closed, also sad to see wild animals in confined spaces, sad and distressed! Maybe it’s time to move the entire zoo to whipsnade
