you can go to edinburgh castle for free today.
...that's pretty much all i've got.
It's like £35 and gives you free entry to Edinburgh zoo plus a bunch of other ones, like Twycross, Dublin, and... Oslo?
It is rather badass.
My favourite animals are the otters! I like the newer bits in the zoo as well though, with the birds that you can feed and also the living links bit.
I like PANCHO VILLAS!
on most scottish castles - and some other random things.
I am in work, so none of these things matter to me sadly.
This even trumps my lunchtime last week where I walked to Pets At Home and looked at the gerbils :)
I also took this picture
I like it when the whole group are out and they're all standing up waiting for food, then one of them is like I'M GOING DOWN THERE PALS and then they all run down together and play in the stream :D
If you are an otter fan then this is the place for you:
I saw the giant otter at feeding time, he was pure SMASHING fish into the water and then throwing them up in the air and catching them in his mouth! Then I saw some river otters climbing ladders!
You could phone up and ask them? I'm not sure how good the tourism industry is in Chapel-en-le-Frith...
it's not that far from Manchester to the Chestnut Centre. I live in Nottingham and my sister lives in Stockport, sometimes we drive out and meet up at the Chestnut Centre and look at otters. She sponsored an otter for me last year for my birthday :)
but some scotch just gave me some shortbread so Happy St Aandrew's Day!
