  • Fanastic place to go with little ones. The zoo is very attractive with decor and colour. It is not too big so does not require too much walking around (great for tots!) The animals are clearly very well cared for and staff are extremely helpful and informative. It has fantastic facilities too.
  • Incredible day out. Spent 4hrs here and that could have be stretched if the adults weren't so tired! Young kids loved it. Plenty too see and toy are able to venture into some enclosures which I'd never seen before. Animal variety was great and the play staff are excellent too. Was told it wad good but still surpassed expectations.
  • Great place for kids and adults too. Plenty of animals to see. There is a wee fairground in the middle which isn't too expensive, it is small and aimed more at younger kids. We spent about 5hrs there and at £34 for a family of four I say that is good value compared to other places
  • Fab afternoon out. Don't be put off by small car park and entrance. Great set up. Able to get really close to animals and loads to see. Feeding the Lemurs was a treat. Highly recommend a visit. They are busy constructing a soft play are and restaurant. One negative was the aweful coffee
  • Love this zoo and it especially good for younger kids. Feeding the ring tailed lemurs is a must. My son of 10 was a zoo keeper for half a day and he really enjoyed it going round and feeding lots of animals and having a chance to interact with them. He had a cheeky mercat trying to climb into his welly which was very amusing.
