    Went with my partner and it was okay. But it was very dirty and over priced for what it was. There was a wide variety of animals which was good. Then went to the cafe to get coffee and cake, the lady ...  more »

    I went here with all of my family. It was an okay day out, but it could of been a lot better. Firstly they would feed the animals dead chicks which some young children really didn't like. Secondary if...  more »

  • Truly a great place to visit for all the family be prepared for a few strange smells but the animals are well worth seeing and the conservation work carried out here I'd excellent. Great for all ages and families.
  • I thought it would be a fun day out however I was wrong. My 8 year old daughter was excited to see the snakes. There were none in sight. The only one ther semmed to be dead. Horrible waste of money . I would still 1 star if it was free. Waste of time no animals in sight. Dissapointed
  • Fantastic range of British wildlife if you get there early you can join a feeding round, which makes it more interesting.
  • Good couple of hours out of the house. Good for sub7s, older children likely to get bored quickly given absent adventure playground. Great talks by well informed and passionate keepers for the animals that were about, Foxes, Deer, Otters (especially good when fed baby chicks - nb already dead - if they'd been live chicks that would have been just too much entertainment) and owls. However, lots of hidden animals - I guess this is the opportunity cost for having many burrowing or nocturnal or both animals. Well laid out, lots of space, loads of seating to watch animals in beautiful habitat enclosures. Great way to spend a couple of hours. Coffee OK. Price about right (£37 for family of 4). Great for plane spotters too given under the Gatwick flight path but don't let this phase you, it's not exactly at the end of the runway and if the animals don't mind (they don't seem to), neither should you.
  • An old favourite - not very large, but a friendly place with a reasonable collection of animals to see and knowledgeable and friendly staff
