Linton Zoo Reviews
We visited Linton Zoo today and took part in the Lion Feed experience. It was an amazing experience, it was great to get so close to wild but amazing animals. The zoo itself is a lovely place to visit... more »
As a young family we love visiting zoos and this 'zoo' is very disappointing. It is very run down and overgrown in many places so much that you cannot see most of the animals. The lion and tiger enclo... more »
What a fantastic little zoo. Which is a conservation centre. The staff work hard and were incredibly knowledgeable about the animals and answered all questions asked. We got to pet reptiles and learnt... more »
OK for a day out. The Zoo is quite compact and not what I was expecting. I was surprised at the amount and range of animals to view in such a small area. The cafe is quite dated and could do with a good clean. It serves the usual overpriced goodies, such as bacon rolls, sausages etc. You can take your own food and eat them outside at the picnic tables, which is probably the best option..
I had an excellent time at Linton Zoo. It's small, but very well run - the animals are in enclosures designed for their comfort and needs, the breeding and conservations programmes are world-class, and the personal touches are great. We bought a lemur experience on the day for £10 (a really good price!), and John taught us about the four species of lemurs we met, let us feed them all, encouraged them to climb and jump over us, and let us stroke Ruby the red ruffed lemur (which she was happy with). It was fantastic. We had also arranged in advance to feed a tiger, and this was a great experience - we left with a CD of photos, certificates, and memories we won't forget! A great place to spend a day wandering around, even without paying for the extra experiences - we'll definitely be back.
It's our first coming here and we've really enjoyed ourselves. It was nice to be able to show my little boy all the different animals especially the lions and snow leopards. We listened to the talk on the Binturongs and watched them being fed. It was a really informative talk and we learnt lots about them. All the staff have been really friendly and helpful. Both my children have enjoyed looking at the animals and their both still young. It's really well priced as well. I'll definitely be coming again. It was a really good day out.
Great little place, but you can't really spend more than a few hours here. It's quite small. Great for little kids though! My 3 year old loved it, but 7 &8 year olds got a little bored after 2 hours. The staff here are lovely and really care about what they do. Animals are well cared for and loved
This has to be one of the best zoo's I've ever been to. Mikey who took us for the Lemur tour was a perfect host and full of knowledge and one of the nicest chaps we've met in a long while. The zoo is lovely and so nice to just walk about and see everything so up close. One of the Limas called Mirana is so affectionate that you just want to take her home. The work this zoo does with animal preservation and breeding is of the highest standard. A really great day out and very inexpensive which makes this a great place to visit for the whole family. Highly recommended
