Love coming to visit the reindeers, we always go a few times in December whilst it is open. My son uses a wheelchair and it is accessible. All staff are always helpful and friendly.

Visited just before Christmas and really enjoyed my time there. They really cater for the children and spread a wee bit of magic. The animals were super friendly and obviously very well looked after and loved. Worth a visit.
