An amateur film of family trips around the UK including Whipsnade and Chessington zoos.
The film opens with scenes in Postbridge, on Dartmoor, with family trips to rural villages and shots of a Royal Navy ship off the coast. At a sand quarry, men and children fill and load sandbags onto trucks. Snowy scenes of a canal, its banks and weir follow. Fleeting scenes of the 1937 Coronation of George VI celebrations in London and a local parade with union flag bunting. The family enjoy trips to both Whipsnade and Chessington Zoos. Close up shots of the animals.
