  • I enjoyed my visit with 2 Grandchildren aged 6 & 2+half on a beautiful autumn day. Entrance & exit is through the gift shop & the price is very reasonable. It is very safe for small children with an easy to walk layout of the animal enclosures. There are a wide variety of small wild animals, birds, lizards, snakes & frogs from all over the world. They are in well designed enclosures making it easy for all ages to view. Information with a picture about each one, is on a plaque & all animals have a private area in which to hide or rest. There is a busy café serving freshly cooked hot food & drinks which has a great play area for children 6 years or under, so they can play, while you eat or drink & keep an eye on them. The toilets are in a separate building near to the cafe. There is also an outside play area for all ages which again is well designed with fun & safety in mind. We were there 2.5hours which was long enough for the younger child but there is enough to see & do to keep everyone entertained for longer. I would recommend a visit on a dry day so the animals are more likely to be outside.
  • Great for primary age kids. Worth seeing the feeding times. Good outdoor play area. Get to see animals close up. Not very big so ideal for little children for a few hours. Starting to charge for parking from October. Adult £6.50 children 3-15 £3.30 do not expensive. Family tickets available. Some quizzes, activities or trails to follow would make this better for the slightly older child.
  • Lovely little place, spent a few hours here, small enough to see everything without getting tired and big enough to be very satisfying. They have a great selection of animals many of which I had never seen before and never thought I would. And the price is very reasonable.
  • Kids loved it. Was nice and quiet, some really nice exhibits specially reptiles! Guinea pigs where quite poorly kept but in general animal welfare good and great place for families or couples.
  • Wonderful place to visit... Friendly staff and cheap prices. Lot's of animals and great enclosures. Ice cream wasn't cheap but you got alot so we can let it slide. The cafe is nice and takes card over £5. There is a small gift shop and toilets too. It's great to see so much nature and animals when your in a massive city. Thank you for good day out!
