    Which zoo's do you feel boast the most indoor exhibits in the UK? I would say Chester must be up their as having the most do fellow zoochatters agree? As for the best indoor exhibits I'm not sure Edinburgh in my opinion, thoughts?

    I can't imagine any can beat London (though happy to be corrected):

    Reptile house
    Massive aquarium
    BUGS
    Blackburn pavilion
    Clore (upstairs & down)
    Casson pavilion
    Butterfly tunnel
    Plus a number of other indoor areas -Komodo Dragon, Gorilla Kingdom, Giraffe House.

    I'm struggling to think of any other UK zoo where you could spend so much time indoors.

    Others that spring to mind with significant amounts of indoor areas would be Bristol, Chester and Paignton.
