  • Was lovely seeing all the animals. Liked seeing the pengiuns, lions & otters. The pengiun feeding time didn't start on time which was a let down. 
  • Visited this place on Monday 7th November. The zoo was extremely quiet and we had loads of time to photograph the animals including the lions play fighting and the deers coming very close and eating t...  more »
  • A nice ramble, with some realy interesting animals, I'm not a big zoo fan but I have to say this place is different. The animals look content and there is room for them, the lay out is good and they e...  more »

  • Relatively small, though, animal enclosures are better than many i have seen in the past. The only enclosure in need of alteration is the small island dedicated to some of the Lemurs near to main gates which could be increased significantly. The zoo has plenty of animals and the bird enclosures are very open in the bird house offering a great experience to visitors. a great place to go to kill 1 hour 30 or so.
  • Had a lovely day here with my girls and Nanny and Papa. Not a huge amount of animals but what was there, was well looked after. The shows are well worth catching. The guy that gave the talks was fantastic. Interesting, funny, definitely knew his stuff. Best bit!
  • Great zoo for the family, and lots to see. And well layed out. Although some attractions are not well designed for wheelchairs / pushchairs. but I believe the lions enclosure is worryingly small for 3 lions.. And it is sad to see
  • Lots of different animals to be seen, a lovely quiet environment (despite being very close to the town centre) and friendly keepers offering informative and entertaining sessions during feeding times. Plenty for all the family, including a pretty good play area for the children.
  • A big thumbs up !! Animal enclosures are superb A full day out !! Kids will love it You also get a chance to feed the animals Best in the area
