  • We visited to break the journey up on our way to Hampshire. I was a bit concerned with some reviews saying it was small but I told the kids we would take our time and look at everything. Although the ...  more »
  • KEEP YOUR ENTRY TICKET TO RETURN FREE FOR A YEAR!! This makes the entry cost super value! Our group included my daughter with additional needs, an 11yr old and some tiny ones. They all had a good time...  more »
  • This attraction is the type of place where you could spend up to an hour whilst on route to somewhere else. It is pretty much in the middle of nowhere but with ample parking. The couple of hot-houses ...  more »

  • It is a great experience. Its indoors so weather is not an obstacle. decent and interesting variety of tropical plants and animals. Its important to notice that place is quite small. So if you are visiting from further away its probably worth having few more things planned in the same area.
  • It took us about 20 minutes to walk around the whole thing so I really recommend you exploring it thoroughly and having activities and resources, to make it more interactive especially for the older kids. There are some resources on The Living Rainforest website or you could simply have the kids try to find something in the rainforest beginning with each letter in the alphabet - the person who fills out their alphabet the fastest wins. Also if you can find Cinnamon the sloth then you're in for a treat, she is fascinating!
  • Great place to visit. Tickets last one year so you can visit again. Cafe and outdoor area. If your lucky you might spot the Sloth!
  • I live locally & have visited the rain Forest with my grandchildren a number of times. I am afraid to say that over the last couple of years I feel it has deteriorated. We visited today &, having understood from the website that the crocodile (a major attraction for my grandchildren which was absent last year) had returned, found it was still in Germany and not going to return. Some of the cages were empty and there seemed to be far fewer birds than before. Many of the plants looked rather sad and of course it is the animals & birds which interest young children most. £27.95 is a lot to pay for such a limited facility, I feel.
  • Wonderful place - I was transported! Fantastic place for children. Thank you very much.
