Why locals recommend it
London Zoo is such a delight to walk around, and it’s a really relaxing place for a date. There’s so much going on, with more than 20,000 animals to see, but I especially like the Land of the Lions, a new exhibit of Asiatic lions. I also love watching the monkeys and the otters play. The zoo is situated on the northern edge of Regent’s Park and is south of one of the city’s most stunning and breathtaking viewpoints, Primrose Hill. Head there afterwards with a picnic.

London Zoo sits in the northern part of Regent’s Park and is extremely popular with families. Wildlife habitats include Tiger Territory, Gorilla Kingdom, Land of the Lions, Penguin Beach and Reptile House (where part of a Harry Potter film was shot). Meet the Monkeys is a big hit with younger kids…

London Zoo is amazing - beautifully designed and packed full of fantastic animals from around the world. You can easily spend a whole day here. It's about 20 minutes in a taxi or car.

“Madame Tussauds in London has been visited by around 500 million people since it first opened and attracts over 2.5 million visitors every year. The museum was founded and named after the framed wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, who was born in Strasbourg, France in 1761. The first exhibition of Madame Tussauds in London opened in 1835 on Baker Street but was later moved to its present location on Marleybone Road in 1894. ”

“Large, state-of-the-art aquarium popular with families and children. There are 17 themed zones to walk through. The Atlantic and Pacific Ocean habitats show off creatures of the deep, while Tidal Reach proves that coastal British waters are anything but boring! Sharks glide around a wreck, monster catfish lurk in warm rainforest waters and kids can look for Nemo and Dory in tanks full of clown fish and blue tang. Highlights include the Ocean Tunnel, with sharks swimming overhead, feeding times at the ray and rainforest fish tanks, and the Antarctic section featuring gentoo penguins. ages: 2+ tube: Waterloo or Westminster open: Mon-Fri 10:00 to 18:00, Sat & Sun 9:30-19:00 costs: Standard ticket is £21 for adults, £16.80 for kids 4 to 15.
