We used a groupon voucher that gave us entry for £8 the family which I felt was good value. I visited with my two children aged 2 and 4. As with a lot of these places I think... read more

One of the friendliest and competitively priced animal parks I have been to. The gentleman who runs the park is very approachable. Also highly knowledgeable about all the animals in his care. The animals are very well cared for and the small BBC Radio broadcast museum onsite is a great feature along with the aquarium. Very easy to find due... More

Zoo is not what this is. What this is is a few animals in a random setting!! Should of known when we drove in car park to do a u turn!!!! This has the potential to be so much more but is very disappointing 10 quid to get in and it wasn't worth that at all The animals were varied... More

Under English Law we are a zoo, and any argument on the matter stops there.Interestingly at present there is some doubt whether we can maintain our small zoo status because we may have exceeded the number of animals that qualify us as such, unlike the other establishment that you mention. I do wonder whether or not you found the whole... More

Oh dear, you do not seem to be having a very good time at the moment 3 out of your 4 reviews indicated that the places you visited were poor or terrible. As you have taken the trouble to read our other reviews, including all the recent 5 star ones, you will have seen my previous comments about hyperosmia, and... More

I recently visited Tropiquaria with my two young children. the staff there were lovely, helpful and they ran good encounter sessions. the encounter sessions involved bringing out snakes, bearded dragons, skunks and a very lovely parrot. We got to hold them, ask questions and have pictures with them. They play equipment is fantastic for younger children. There are two pirate... More

We visited Tropiquaria earlier today and it wasn't our first visit. We have been here loads of times and we LOVE it here. Don't believe the negative reviews. All of the staff are happy, helpful and extremely knowledgable about all the animals they keep and they also appear very passionate about the animals as they talk with excitement and seem... More

Brilliant for young kids, excellent play facilities across the park in the form of two large pirate ships, a play fort with zip wire and a second indoor play castle in the cafe area. Enough to keep kids busy for hours on a sunny day. Along with these attractions there is a growing collection of animals, including a indoor tropical... More

My husband and I decided we would take our son here to celebrate his 2nd birthday. We didn't want a long trip and this was only 45 mins from home. We had read a few reviews on here and went with mixed feeling, I'm pleased to say we had a lovely day out. We arrived to a slightly alternative building... More

Definently worth a visit. Please do not be put off by the facade of the building. It is listed and must remain in its original state. The price is very reasonable and you certainly do not feel you are being " ripped off" like a lot of the big multi national theme parks. The staff are very passionate about their... More

as on holiday with my family we thought as we had young children tropiquaria would be ideal. as we arrived we had to go on a diversion that took us about 2 miles out. When we got there it looked like we turned up in the 1800s there was not one car in the carpark and it was deserted it... More

Clearly we have been unable to do anything about the road works, and the associated diversion.In fact coming from the Butlins direction the diversion is 3.8 miles, and is signposted. Having now read the rest of the review I will just correct your mistakes and leave the rest to the readers. 1. There would never be no cars in the... More
