thanks hun looking like woburn it is!
I love woburn! Whipsnade bores me as you spend all day walking and animals few and far between. You can get really close at Woburn in the car
Woburn is expensive, in my opinion whipsnade is a better day out, and if you go on a nice day take a walk on Dunstables downs and watch the gliders. I know from experience as I have lived in Dunstable Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard. I now live in Manchester, The only advice on Manchester i can give you is AVOID!!!

Manchester...poor you!! Woburn is best with Tesco vouchers
Woburn is great - but avoid the monkey drivethrough if you want your car in one piece by the end of the day haha saw them destroy some poor guys soft-top car before

whipsnade larger better animals. Don't ever do London its just cruel how small the compounds are for the large animals.

lol went ages ago and ended up going to woburn loved it tho so no regrets
Woburn is great in the monkey enclosure but get someone else to take their car instead of you taking yours.
I took my nephew when he was little. He had a banana with him which he waved at the monkeys. They then attacked the mirrors and windscreen wipers. It was funny but a bit scary at the same time. One of the warden jeeps had to come over and shoo them away. Then we went into the lion enclosure and my nephew tried to open one of the doors.

You need a car with central locking, where you can control the locks.

But its a great day out. Could probably get some great photos. Dont know Whipsnade.
