"A really brilliant day out with loads of different animals…"
A really brilliant day out with loads of different animals seen close up, and lots of activities and amenities for visitors too. Indoor and outdoor eating areas and plentiful picnic benches dotted around means you don't have to spend money in the cafe if you don't want to, and the shop has a huge range of different gifts and toys, perfect for all ages. We particularly enjoyed being able to get up close with the animals in the walk-through enclosures, -the kangaroos, lemurs and flamingos and also the rather scary looking emus! The high-walk ways are great to view the tigers and monkeys and the huge walk in bird-cage allows you to see eagles and other large birds flying about and feeding without restriction. There is a fab ride-on train too which goes round the park to amuse little ones. All in all a superb day out and well worth visiting.Read moreLess
"This is a great zoo - I have visited every…"
This is a great zoo - I have visited every time I have been in the area since it was set up.
From now until the first week in Feb it is free admission.
But worth the entry prices when you do pay full price. It is the only zoo I have been to where I have not needed to feel worried about the welfar of the animals as they are obviously well fed, well exercised as they can be in an enclosure.
They do great work abroad in conservation projects too.Read moreLess
