Families shouldn’t miss a visit to the Chessington World of Adventures, a sprawling theme park that was established as a zoo back in 1931. It boasts more than 40 rides set across several themed areas that include the Wild West-inspired Mexicana, Pirates’ Cove and the Land of the Tigers. In addition to its rollercoasters and river ride, the park is home to more than 1,000 animals that include Sumatran tigers and western lowland gorillas.
