  • This was our first visit here with our toddler. Maybe it was the time of year and the poor weather but I was very disappointed. Compared to other similar attractions this place comes low down my list....  more »

  • Why anyone would complain about this place is beyond me, it's clean, nicely spread around, plenty of kids areas and picnic zones. Had a really great day, kids loved it, animals are in clean and have well maintained cages all spacious, it's not overly priced, really great place for everyone. Will definitely be going back and will recommend to anyone and everyone.
  • So we decided to go as it was reccomeded by a friend. First of all I will be rethinking my friendship with that person, second of all I am no save the animals kinda guy but it would be kinder if the animals were put down. The monkeys has the best enclosure and that was appalling as it was no taller than 10 ft. Nowhere for them to climb or swing really. The birds of prey enclosure was about 8 ft by 6 and about 7ft high. It could barley stretch it wings never mind fly anywhere. That's the same for the party's etc. The poor otter was asleep against a concrete wall and I'm not surprised with seas pool they called an enclosure. I can honestly say never again. The little one thought it was ok but wasn't really amused. I seriously don't know how it's still open.
  • Entry price is fair, lots of different animals to see. There are a few bench areas to have a break... I recommend this place to children and also people who want to have a therapeutic walk.
  • Wish i could give one star less, the animals were kept in unsuitable habitats to suit their own. All the animals had were twigs in every habitat to play with, a guinepig had some square cut cardboard as its home. the reindeers fur was peeling off and the reindeer was bleeding out of her bum. Very displeased. Regards Ellie & Josh :(
  • We did this place in one hour and 5 minutes including toasties and a drink. Not much there looks run down with unhappy animals.
