    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 minutes’ 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 couldn’t get any photos due to where they were laying, (so so cute) the cubs were born on the 8th June (my mum’s 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, it’s amazing to walk thought and have the monkey’s 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.

    I think they should change it to... the public walking through the tiger enclosure instead of the monkeys....

    We got to see the Aquarium when we were in London in 2007. We had a coupon that got us in for free. After seeing the entrance price, and then going through we were glad that we didn't have to pay that price to see it. It was interesting I'll admit but to us not worth the admission's price.

    Total agree, we got the children in for free but had to pay £40.00 for us. not worth the money. London zoo was worth every penny.
