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.

Welsh Mountain Zoo reviews
After walking around the zoo we decided to get some food from the cafe, I went in and I could see boxes of chips under a food warmer. The chips were a ripoff and were dry, and disgusting. Other than..... more »
Wow ! Never been before but as a lot of attractions were limited in the area we decided to visit the zoo. We felt really safe and precautions had been taken for visitors, the animals were great. more »
This is litrally my back garden zoo , since i moved here i often hear the sea lions and monkey while sat in my garden .so i decided to visit for the first time in 45 years and it didnt disapoint well.... more »
Great day out. Lots of easy access routes around the zoo but still had a couple of issues with the pushchair (more of an issue with the wheels than the zoo). Park areas were great for older children. Would definitely recommend.
Not the cheapest zoo to get in but in my view worth the admission price. Try to catch the talks from the keepers as they are very interesting and highlight the keepers knowledge of the animals. Good selection of animals and a well laid out zoo, good walking shoes are a must as it is definitely a 'mountain' zoo. Good for children and adults alike. Would recommend a visit.
The improvements they have made recently are great nice clean new toilets, baby changing and signage. Although I do feel more could be spent on the actual animal enclosures... Especially the Bears... But looking forward to seeing the new Snow Leopard enclosure I saw plans for. And great new Flamingo area too. I know these things take time. But will keep visiting and good luck
It's a perfect day out for the family and really well priced. Lots if animals to see and learn about!they have a really good range on animals to see, from tigers to alligators! I highly recommend going here if you're in the north of wales
Beautiful place. Took all the kids and very much enjoyed it. Really kept nice and full credit to the groundsmen there. The gardens were awesome. Shame the tiger and bear were not out and navigation around could be better but a fantastic day out
