Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web
With a bend toward conservation, Welsh Mountain Zoo houses many endangered species, such as snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, and Andean condors. A wide range of other mammals, birds, and reptiles also make their home in the park. Explore the Media Centre, which is filled with educational games for children, and watch some of the featured animal shows that are available throughout the day. While the animals live with ample space (15 hectares or 37 acres), the design of the park makes it easy for you to get up close. Its hilltop location makes the surrounding environment part of the experience. Because of the hilly terrain, wheelchair accessibility is limited. A visit to Welsh Mountain Zoo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Colwyn Bay vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Little ones enjoyed it. Sprawling site, with no real 'route' allowing you to explore. Food options were limited, I'd recommend a home brought picnic. Some concessions made for pushchairs but needed a lot of effort to get up and down the mountain side. The alligator was the most impressive!
  • A hidden gem that is well worth a visit. As it is a smaller zoo you really get close to the animals, the food on site is the usual fair but the staff are friendly and helpful with it.
  • Very good day out with family. Kids loved it. I would have given it 4. if I didn't go to the onsite 'The Safari Restaurant'. Main dish served Fries with Beans. The day just took a nose dive after that. Very disappointed with menu. Nothing for vegetarians other fries n beans. You would thinking paying £38 for entry in a place would at least ensure a decent Restaurant on site. Animals range was very good though.
  • was dissapointed poor lay out bad for disabled and children in pushchairs , could not get to see everything due to steps and having to go around everything , map of the zoo was poor did not show you enough , need to get rid of the steps , and to sign post were everything is,could be better , would not recomend
  • Please please don't go to this deceptive place, me and my family had a horrible experience in that place last Sunday. When we having the lunch in a restaurant called Penguin Cafe, I order 5 meals for my family and paid 25 pounds 20 at the counter, but the staff only gave us two. When I told them we r still waiting for some food, all the staff in there are very rude. They just keep quiet, or said: I don't know ..... He already gone home ...... Some staff shouting at us: Shut Up, Shut Up...... Finally I have to call the police to solve out our argument. They return 15 pounds back to me at the end, but that still very very annoy me and my family, they just like the cheaters !! Please don't go !!
