Our family took a trip to England and Wales, staying mostly in the vicinity of Bristol, during the course of which we visited four zoos with penguins. The highlight was a visit to Dudley Zoo where our younger son got to meet the chicks of the penguin a friend had "adopted" there for him. Here are some of the photos:

The Humboldt penguin enclosure there has an advantage over every other in the world: Dudley Castle.
