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.

Love colchester zoo, but just wanted to say that London Zoo has moved the penguins to a nice new area

as a colchester resident, i am more likely to rave about Colchester Zoo, but i will admit - IT IS FANTASTIC!

Me and DH took dd a few months ago and although she was too young to care - she was about 8 months - we LOVED it... got to feed a girraffe!

Love Colchester zoo too. Last time we went I got to feed an elephant. DD always gets her face painted there. Only downside is that it is a bit hilly and tricky for heavy buggies.
