We didn't know what to expect, as this was located in a garden centre. There was a wide range of birds of prey, a few species of monkey's ect. A good day out, for both families or grown-ups.

Each time we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The animals, birds and reptiles are very well cared for and renovations are being carried...More
