good when you can get a voucher!

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

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

We got a groupon voucher for this, and had never heard of it before - but I thought for an inexpensive day out it would be worth going along. I have a four and a six year old, and it was absolutely perfect for them. I'm not sure it would have worked so well with older children, but it was... More

The most incredible place! The building where the zoo is situated is fascinating before you even see an animal! It's old & a bit tatty but just ooozing with character! A really interesting selection of animals and great 'show and tell' times with the handlers! They were very knowledgeable and let us spend a lot of time with Monty the... More

the leaflets looked amazing but I was disappointed by the zoo. it's in need of updating. it looks tired and dated. I appreciate the building is not the nicest looking. the animals enclosures were clean and they looked well cared for. the fish tanks looked really small for some of the larger fish. they wouldn't be able to swim. the...

Myself and my disabled mother travelled almost 2hours to come and see the zoo as the leaflets make it look like a great place. Apoun arriving we were shocked at the look of the enterance as it didnt look appealing but we gave it the benefit of the doubt and still continued inside. There was no one at the first... More

No real issues to note. Although the building's exterior isn't the most pleasing on the eyes, anyone that looks into the history of the Grade-II listed building ought to recognize that it has a rich and interesting history. The enclosures are all suitably cared for and the animals look very happy and healthy within themselves - as well as being... More
