    Three questions about zoos or aquariums in Britain:

    1: in Battersea Park, London, there has been: BATTERSEA PARK CHILDRENS ZOO and BATTERSEA PARK DOLPHINARIUM (currently closed). Does anyone know the exact location of both places ?: for example: upper right corner ... or next to X street


    2: at Crystal Palace Park, London, there have been: CRYSTAL PALACE PARK ANIMALS EXHIBITS (ca. 1856-ca.1936), CRYSTAL PALACE PARK AQUARIUM (1871-ca. 1895 or 1910), CRYSTAL PALACE PARK CHILDRENS ZOO (closed in 2008 ), CRYSTAL PALACE PARK FARM (open in 2008). The same question: exact location. Are any of these four places exactly in the same physical location as another one?

    3: of Weston super Mare I have two places: The Aquarium, Marine Lake, Weston super Mare, North Somerset BS23 1BE (currently closed); and Sea Life Center, Marine Parade, Weston super Mare, North Somerset BS23 1BE GREAT BRITAIN. Have they been in exactly the same place? that is, Sea Life Center has occupied the Aquarium building when it closed?

    The Dolphinarium was in the Pleasure Gardens which I believe is where the 'Evolution' exhibition space is now situated. The childrens zoo is directly above.
