Hounslow Petting Zoo - don't bother

Not a petting zoo, new regulations and you can't touch any animals. The sign at the front which said 'no refunds' should have been a warning for us.

Went yesterday and found it all pretty poor. We had to work pretty hard to make it good fun for the children.
The set activities which run ever hour and done with little enthusiasm or thought really. (the exception was the pig race which was lots of fun)
The 'tractor toys' are now one.
Extra £ to go onto jumping castle and mechanical ride.
No Cafe - just a vending machine (this was ok as we had bought a picnic)

Felt like a ghost town and this was the first weekend of the school holidays!
£15 for family entry bit overpriced without the petting part.

Just my opinion but overall disappointed after the effort to get to the farm for our fun day out.

Haven't been for a year or so, sounds like it may have got worse. You used to be able to sit in a small barn and cuddle the rabbits.
The vending machine coffee was horrible last time I had it, no improvement there then.

Definitely no cuddles with rabbits - boys would have loved that!
