About the tour

Come time travelling with Zoe in modern London, where we will step back hundreds and then millions of years! Forget Jurassic Park, this is the famous Crystal Palace Park in South East London. The site of the former Crystal Palace Exhibition building. It’s a beautiful Victorian era, 200 acre adventure playground and home to the most extraordinary and giant Grade 1 listed sculptures as well as a Maze, lakes and a concert bowl. Experience the magnificent beasts and the first ever exhibition of Dinosaurs, in the world!


Meet your local guide

Zoe

Zoe studied at Chelsea School of Art and enjoys painting professionally in her London studio ( her ‘Happy Place’ ). She's also enjoying her ongoing career as an actress and musician, with appearances on programmes including The Bill, Ab Fab, Eastenders and dancing with ZZ Top. You can catch Zoe on radio shows, hosting Open Mics and festivals in and around London and she loves nothing more than to be gigging with her band ‘Zoe and the Bandits’, or writing and performing her own songs for upcoming album. Zoe teaches Art and guitar online, to keep the tiers at bay.... and now you can join Zoe virtually, her abundant energy and zest for life in London, its many treasures of interesting and sometimes unknown spectacles... through the eyes of a working artist/musician and actress!

Zoe has been guiding since Jan 2021

Zoe in London: Thank you for a fabulous tour of London. Hopefully, I will get to tour this landmark after the pandemic ends.

Zoe was very engaging and informative. This tour is ideal for both children and adults who have an interest in dinosaurs as well as the history and development of parks in the UK. Many thanks hope to visit the park sometime.
