  • Had a great visit on a Saturday lunch time. Park is easy to get to from the m18 and ample parking. Prices are what you'd expect from similar venues. Park isn't too big and isn't too small, just right. All facilities are clean and well maintained. Good selection of animals and especially love the walk through areas. Lemurs were excellent. Will definitely visit again
  • Absolutely amazing place to visit for young or old, the park is beautifully laid out, the animals have huge enclosures with so much more room to roam than in any zoo I have ever seen. Great range of different species of animals. Fabulous up close opportunities with the animals. A great selection of different and varied shops in the entrance and plenty of refreshment stops and toilets throughout the park. The facilities are great. This really is one of the best places we have ever visited and the safari nights experience made the trip even more wonderful, live music from Boyzlife on our trip 😍 and a fantastic fireworks display absolutely brilliant day out. Highly recommended to everyone, you really will not be disappointed....
  • Great place to visit with family or friends, you could happily spend all day here and visit reasonably often. As the prices (when compared with other similar attractions) are relatively low, we visit a couple of times a year. Every time we go we are surprised at how much additional development work they have undertaken. The park obviously take pride in providing the best possible enclosures and conditions for each animal, large or small. Several of the enclosures have a mixture of animals in like they would be in the wild...although they do keep the lions and zebras separate for obvious reasons. Some enclosures containing the smaller animals like lemurs, wallabies and spider monkeys, you are able to walk through, which allows you to get a really close up look at the animals. There are multiple really great playgrounds if you are taking children, and there is also a live show about bugs. From memory there are two showings, one at 12 and the other at 3pm. The park is already great, but you get the impression that because of their continued development, they will end up being one of the finest zoos in the country. Well worth visiting!
  • Lovely park to visit been before highly recommend it. The polar bears are beautiful and the otters are funny, didn't see any lemurs outside this time but could be because weather wasn't very nice. A great family day out and cheaper if you book online
  • Wonderful visit. My partner had an adopted Giraffe at the park and we went as a full family, ( rare event these days ), for Adopters day. We had a fantastic day. Loved seeing all the animals, my partner especially loved the Giraffes. I would highly recommend a visit. We will be back very soon.
