Regent's Park zoo is a place I would normally avoid, but it is interesting if you have children to entertain. It swallows money however!
Adults 14 GBPounds
Child [3-15] 10.75 GB pounds
under 3years free

I remember being taken to see Brumas, the newborn polar bear when I was young, and was fascinated by the crocodiles.But all that was before things were modernized!

When I took my children [way back about 1975] they liked the aquarium, the sealions, the monkeys, big cats, giraffes, elephants and penguins. But now the elephants are no longer there.

Now it's grandchildren that go . I took my grand-daughter and her favourites were the monkeys, the birds and reptiles.
