I just wanted to recommend Colchester zoo. took ds for his first birthday and he loved it especially the lions and the elephants as you can get right up close. I went london zoo about a year ago and i was really disappointed. No elephants, the penguins were kept in a dirty tank and everything was extremly over priced and nothing special. Colchester zoo is all for the kids and is a really good day out. We went in the pouring rain but it was still one of the best days out that we have had as a family ! Ds was so excited!
Just been to Colchester Zoo today and was going to say how brilliant it was,DS loved it and spent the whole day running around totally excited.DH and I thought it was fab too,haven't been to London zoo for a few years think we may just go back to Colchester as there was so much to see and do.
also Colchester zoo keeps u fit with all those hills! Really was a day to remember. Dp has a few days off this week which i am really looking forward to we are going to take ds now he is walking and hopefully the wheather will be better! I can't wait!
