Of all the fascinating sites and attractions that the capital has to offer, London Zoo has to be up there with the best of them. Housing a huge number of exciting animals from all over the world, it's the sort of place that never fails to thrill, and is much loved by all who visit.
However, if you're looking to learn a little more about the famous institution then you may wish consider booking a place on one of the zoo's History Tours, which take place on the last Friday and Saturday of each month.
On the tour, you'll have the chance to learn all about the zoo's past, from its beginnings all the way up to its present status as one of the leading establishments of its kind on the planet. Whilst doing so, you'll be told all about some of the most intriguing animals to have been housed at the famous menagerie.
Perhaps the most fascinating element of the tour is the fact that your guide will explain all about how the Zoological Society of London helped to provide the inspiration and support that led to Charles Darwin developing his famous theories of evolution and natural selection.
On top of this, you'll be told all about the many Grade I and II listed buildings that are located in and around the zoo, while also having the chance to see the many wonderful creatures that call the place home.
London Zoo can be found in Regent's Park, and is therefore easy to reach from all other top London attractions as well as many of the finest luxury hotels in the capital.
History Tours will be held on July 18th and 19th, but will be suspended during August, returning on September 26th and 27th, October 24th and 25th, and November 28th and 29th.
