Yesterday, we went to London Zoo as we had Tesco vouchers that covered most of the entry fee. We arrived at Kings Cross around 10.30 and went to the new(ish) Kings Place arts centre near to the station. It's an impressive building and there is loads going on, so we must make an effort to get some culture there soon.
We walked to the zoo, via Camden, along the canal - the route we often cycled. With the wildlife and gently flowing water, you can easily forget that you are in the middle of this huge city.
We had a good look around the zoo and saw some amazing animals. I always have mixed feelings at places like this, but some of the inhabitants are so rare, that the zoo is the only place to keep the species going.
After about 3 hours, we grabbed a beer and then a late lunch/early dinner at Prezzo, also with Tesco vouchers. So, it was a great and cheap day out!
