London Zoo offers special things to do in London this half-term
Published: Monday 15th of February 2010
A trip to the zoo must be one of the most exciting things to do in London for kids this half-term.
With its calendar of regular events, London Zoo continues to be one of the most popular London attractions, not least during the school holidays.
One of the events that kids love is the daily feeding of penguins at the zoo, which takes place at 2pm and is an especially entertaining spectacle as the penguins gulp down whole fish in one go.
Another particularly interesting daily feature for all the family is the chance to "go underground" at the Root Zone area of the zoo, where visitors get chance to look beneath the surface and see the aardvarks and porcupines tunnelling and digging their underground burrows.
London Zoo, located in the north-east corner of Regent's Park, is home to more than 750 different species of animal and is open every day of the year apart from Christmas Day.
