  • SarahCroft – “A bit disappointng, to be honest. It was very expensive to get in and our group spent about 70 pounds on entrance fees alone. For that kind of money we could have had a day out in chessington world of adventures which also has a few animals and rollercoaster rides which my kids would have preferred. But because London zoo is such a famous attraction and we'd never been there before we Decided to take them there instead. A lot of the exhibits were completley empty. The aquarium was closed and the gorillas were missing, maybe they were on holiday. And we couldn't see anything in a lot of the reptile tanks despite being with a boy with the eagle-ist eyes of anyone in the world! I know that they have to do maintenaince sometimes, and October is probably a good time to do it because its out of the tourist season. But when you spend close to £20 each getting in, you expect to see some animals!”
  • josh – “I've been to lots of zoos all around the world and this one is pretty poor, to be honest. It is way too much money for what you get to see. It's seems to be all about the conservation side of things, which is very noble, but they need to remember that they are also there to entertain people. I dont want to be bombarded with pc nonsense telling me about doctors feeding monkeys with pipettes. I want to actually see the monkeys in the exhibit! I know it's winter and I probably went at the wrong time of year, but half the exhibits seemed to be undergoing maintenance so you couldn't see anything. Maybe I’ll go back in the summer, or maybe I won't. There probably wasn't enough there to make me want to go back, to be honest.”

> Craig’s review of London Zoo – “If you want to do London Zoo properly then you'll be walking around for 4-5 hours so you need to take it slow, because it's a proper zoo: there are no rides, no rollercoasters, no dolphins doing tricks with the kids. You just stand in front of the cages trying to find the animals, then you buy a stuffed monkey from the gift shop and go home. The aquarium is a nice pe… continued”
