In the heart of London, on the north side of Regentís Park, is London Zoo. When London Zoo opened in 1828 it housed a collection of exotic animals that were studied by eminent scientists of the day. Only later, in 1847, did London Zoo open its doors to the public and, from then on, it became the most famous zoo in the world. Among many world firsts, London Zoo opened the first reptile house and public aquarium. Today London Zoo looks after 650 animal species.

My first memory of London Zoo was on a junior school visit back in 1977 and I came home with a plastic polar bear, which still comes out as a Christmas decoration each year. Over the years London Zoo has changed and developed to meet its new audiences but is still one of the world's premier zoo's with a staggering number and range of species. Their aim is to educate and inform with just a little bit of entertain thrown in too. Loved it back in 1977 and still do. - Abby Harris
   
I had not been to London Zoo for 27 years until last week, it's the same with every zoo in every capital city, hidden away in the view of everyone. In this case London Zoo is just off the Marylebone Road, behind several mainline stations that head out to France, Belgium and Scotland and while these 650 species feed and sleep away, several million people ignore them daily.

That was my view. My children loved the place and we'll be going again soon. The zoo is situated at the far end of Regents Park.
