A lovely day out with plenty of animals to see. There are lots of signs offering alternative options for viewing the animals if they're not in the outside of their enclosures. I was lucky enough to see the male panda and 5 penguins doing the...More

Very disappointed with the zoo. A lot of animal enclosures we’re “sorry no ones home” or just Empty! The only bit that was full was the penguins. The pandas are obviously a big attraction but the indoor enclosure was closed so missed seeing them. I...More

The zoo has a great range of animals but just feels neglected. The meerkats were nowhere to be seen and the lemur walkthrough closed. It was a hot day and all the kiosks were closed. Very underwhelming and not a zoo to revisit. Disappointing.

Hi, We visited recently and just bought our tickets on the day and to be honest the queue was ok and it took us about the same amount of time to get in as it did for those who had prebooked tickets. You don’t need to book... More
