London Zoo, UK

London Zoo is the world's oldest scientific zoo founded over 180 years ago and can be found in the heart of London, in Regent’s Park. The zoo has been undergoing extensive refurbishment with the Gorillas benefitting with a brand new £5.3m enclosure. Other new exhibits include the tropical biome, tropical bird walk through and butterfly paradise.

Although this zoo is located in the middle of the city it still has plenty of animals to see including lions, camels, giraffes, penguins, tigers, monkeys and meerkats to name but a few. The Aquarium is also one of the world's oldest and has three areas.

There are several places where you can purchase food and drink and souvenirs can be purchased in the gift shop.

The nearest underground tube station is Camden Town on the Northern Line.
