Good facility, farm animals and birds that young children love to see. Staff are nice and friendly. There is a tearoom with a large fish tank if you get cold or wet and a large outdoor sandpit and swings.

I visit here about once a year, should go more often, and always enjoy a walk around the various animal pens and the pond. There is a cafe though I have not used it. Some attractions for kids too.

A good free day out that the kids really enjoyed. A nice place for a picnic, a great swing park, the kids love the zip slide. Not a big selection of animals though....

we took our grandkids for a day out but there was nothing there apart from a swing park and a shop with very limited stock. Most of the animal enclosures were empty and looked derelict.

As per quite a few other reviews Palacerigg is not the same as it used to be for variety of animals . The Founder the late David Stephens would be sorely disappointed as they had creatures such as Bison and Wolves to name a couple...More

Unfortunately this visit was a bit disappointing, loved this place before but less animals, place seems tired, cafe wasn't great and totally overpriced for what they serve, not sure we would come back
