Forget Madam Tussauds, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, if you asked me what my favourite pastime in London is, my answer would be the London zoo. It is the one attraction that I will happily brave the queues of crying tired children just to spend a few hours wondering around in the peaceful surroundings! I grew up being surrounded by nature and wildlife and I never really knew how much I took that for granted until I moved to the oppressive noisy city – now I get excited when I see an urban fox or squirrel! The zoo is massive and I never manage to see everything at once but if you decide to make the trip, don’t miss the butterfly tent, the meerkats, the gorillas or the llamas! Have a good weekend everyone!
