ZSL London Zoo

London Zoo is a short, signposted walk from Camden Town Underground station. Usually we don’t entertain zoos but one look at the London Zoo website was enough to show us that these people are all about conservation, and getting involved with projects around the world that’ll help animals try to survive the immense pressure that humans are putting them under at the moment.

The Drawn by Light Exhibition at the Science Museum

The show was called…

I’ll actually quote the opening paragraph as it’ll give you an idea of what I mean, and…
