  • The main difference with Banham over some other Zoos we've been to is the ample size of the animal enclosures. Plenty of room to wander and hide(!). A good varied selection of species, some you can get quite close. The road train is best used to have an easy ride round and select which areas you may want to check out later. There are a couple of 'watering holes' offering the usual hot and cold. The main restaurant isn't as expensive as you might expect, best to go early as it gets busy. The Birds of prey section is worth a visit, but our highlight was the Animal show where you are entertained by some very amusing creatures and just as amusing host. Highly recommended.
  • A great day out. Mid September was a great time to go. Weather just nice enough to walk about and barely anyone around. Staff where helpful and knowledgeable and I really recommend going to the displays and feeding times to see the animals close up. Ticket price is expensive but they do donate a lot to animal charities to support endangered species.
  • Absolutely love coming here with our daughter, so much to see and do. The animals are really well cared for and the zoo is spotlessly clean with lots of toilets dotted around the park. The food looks very good and there are various food available hot or cold. The play areas are great for big and little kids. The safari train is for great for sightseeing around the zoo. Everthing is clearly sign posted and you can feed the giraffes for a reasonable fee.
  • We took a family trip to Banham Zoo and absolutely loved it. It was a very hot day, so some of the bigger animals (especially the big cats) were difficult to see as they had found some shade to snooze in, but it was still a great day out. My son enjoyed seeing the animals and we found it to be very buggy-friendly. Food is quite average, but it was good enough for lunch and then to continue round.
  • Fantastic family day out. The kids really loved it and it was excellent value for money. The animals are well kept and looked after and there was plenty of information on them all. There was also good information on conservation. A lot of opportunities to interact with the animals (for a fee, like feeding the giraffes and zoo keeper experiences).
