    Day started out by us missing the train to Brighton leaving us 2 minutes to run and get the train to London, we made it just in time.
    Arrived in London to find out the Victoria line was closed so we had to get a different tube, not to bad but I hate it when you have it planned out and things change.
    Arrived at Camden town and had a 15 minutesí walk to London Zoo it was getting really warm by now, arrived and started with the aquarium.
    Here are some shots, sorry about the quality of the shots but they are though glass.

    We saw a lion and lioness plus the 2 month old cubs but I couldnít get any photos due to where they were laying, (so so cute) the cubs were born on the 8th June (my mumís birthday)

    Of to the meet the monkey section, not sure if anyone has been to London zoo but this part is where you can walk though and the monkeys are free in the trees, itís amazing to walk thought and have the monkeyís right next to you.

    We had spent about 3 hours at London zoo, it was now time to go a get food and catch the tube to waterloo so we could visit London Aquarium.
    We all had Mc Donald then head back to the tube NOOOOOOOO The tube was closed so we had to walk 15 minutes to the next tube station; final arrived at the station 7 stops later waterloo then a 10 min walk to the Aquarium. NOOOOOOOOOOO big long queue, final got in and spent about an hour walking around they were lots of fish (LOL) some really big sharks and sea turtles. Here are a couple of photos I took.
