Day two we headed to Twycross zoo. While I working at Rare I would sometimes hear the monkeys in the morning which was impressive considering the zoo is three miles away from Rare’s offices!
The zoo is famous for its monkey enclosures, so we headed there to take a look. I guess the monkeys were feeling the heat as much as we were; they weren’t very active:

The zoo was also host to several school’s, so we decided to eat at Dobbies world where we bought some burgers from the farmers market next door. We ended the day with a BBQ and somehow C found my camera:
