    I visited this zoo today with my son. I did find the entry a little expensive but as there is such a vast number of animals to maintain I can forgive this. I did however feel that many areas could do ...  more »

  • Wonderful collection of animals to see ,from the smallest of ants to lions and brown bears and lots in between, with many foreign and tropical species too. Animals are well looked after and the zoo is clean and tidy to walk around. Decent prices for entry with concessions for family tickets and elderly and disabled. The zoo is accessible for Disabled visitors. Hand sanitiser is sited at many locations throughout the zoo. Located in a wonderful rural location surrounded by countryside. Some on sight food is sold and the facility to picnic also. Toilet facilities are very basic but functional. The park also has some fairground style rides for the kids too, although this incurs an extra reasonable cost. They have an on site gift shop and sit-in cafe also. A great day out for all if animals are your interest. This was my second visit to the zoo with my family and I will definitely be back to visit again!
  • Wow what a fabulous friendly and not overpriced zoo!! We spent the day here, took a picnic with us and had a fabulous day out! Animals are all very well looked after, keepers have no problems answering any questions you may have. Also plenty hand sanitiser available at every location. This is very easy to get around and is very "Disability Friendly!". I myself have a disability and was amazed at how adapt it was. In all honesty this beat Edinburgh Zoo in every way!! Thank you for a wonderful day and look forward to seeing you all again during the summer holidays!! 😁
  • Lovely place. A lot to see and to walk around. Big enclosures for the animals. Lots of things to do for the kids ie mini diggers, trains, carousels, small rides. You get to feed lemurs for extra £5 at specific times. Can bring picnic or people can buy from their shops. Toilets are well kept. Wheelchair accessible, some walks can have steep hills. Overall, a really good day out.
  • Loved it here, first time we'd been. It was a lot bigger than expected. Animals have really good sized enclosures and all look very well kept. Plenty to do and see for your money. Has a little fair ground for kids. The prairie dogs are awesome and so cute!
  • Really good day out here. So much better than Edinburgh zoo. The animals are well cared for and there's lots of handling sessions available to book. There's a large playarea with a carousel and other kids rides. My son had a zoo keeper day and I would highly recommend this. He absolutely loved it.
