Lovely zoo, animals up close, lovely staff, lions and tigers and giant tortoises were my favourites! All for a tenner for an adult! Even bought a season ticket because we loved it so much. Highly recommended

Small zoo easily walked around in couple of hours. Animals seemed well cared for,enclosures clean with plenty of places for the animals to hide. Coffee shop and shop is dated but nothing major. Possibly best for young children. Quiet.

Had a fantastic day out here today. Definitely spend the extra £10 to do the VIP lemer talk. John the guide was very knowledgeable and got the lemurs sitting on everyone's shoulders. The animals are all very healthy and well kept. Their breeding programmes are...More
