London Zoo

Walking from Baker Street to London Zoo on the far side of Regent's Park in the middle of a heatwave is not to be recommended. Find a bus, take a taxi or risk the walk from St John's Wood.

Arriving at the zoo was an eye opener for two people who haven't visited in decades. ZSL London Zoo (to give it the full title) is clearly a place where the animals come first. From the aquarium, to the butterfly house, to the lions and tigers, to the penguins... the habitats are amazing. Given the weather we didn't manage to make the whole zoo - we have to go back sometime to see the other side of the road!!

Blimp - the 2nd Ashes Test starts at Lords
Ducks at the boating lake in the park
Shoals of fish in the Aquarium
The Gorilla just got out of his hammock
Favourite bit - the Humbolt penguins
Beyond humidity in the butterfly house - you're warned!
It might look like love, they were fighting though!
Tiger proving that he and our cat are related!
As close as I get to the tiger
