We went along thinking it would be a half day visit but actually spent a whole day and could have stayed longer. Our children were aged 2,4 ,8 and 11 so it is good for all ages. The play areas are fantastic - the pirate ships are amazing!! There were play areas inside and outside so you can visit in... More

I last went to the Tropiquaria in the '80s as a kid, and thought I'd take my own children this time. Despite varied weather the Tropiquaria was both a hit for parents and kids alike. The history behind the old radio building I found especially fascinating, because it is an excellent example of re-use. The old 1930s radio transmitting building... More

We were looking for somewhere to take our grandchildren (11 and 9) on a coolish bank holiday afternoon. The kids picked this out from a load of tourist leaflets, although we were a bit worried that they may be a bit too old for this attraction. We need not have worried. They both enjoyed themselves and voted it a really... More

What a lovely day out we had at Tropiquaria meeting all the cheeky animals such as the Gibbons, various Lemur species and some cute baby Ring Tailed Lemurs as well. There are many other animals here to and all the animals appear to be in good health and well looked after by their keepers. Make sure you go to all... More

On the 12th August 2014, my husband & I took 2 of our grandchildren to to Tropiquaria Zoo. We all had a wonderful time and the programme of events kept us busy all day. The animals were all out and on form for a good performance!! and the children got to hold a giant land snail & stick insect, staff... More

Good fun was had all round, 14 of us who were staying locally turned up mid week, the staff on the gate were lovely and gave us a really good group discount which made tickets £6.50 each. If you've got kids then they could probably spend hours playing in the pirate ship and meeting the animals in the talks and... More

We have family who live in the area so visit on a fairly regular basis and have done for 4 years now. However this is because of the marvelous play areas for the children not because of the animals, who's housings are shamelessly dirty. The smell of rancid ammonia assaults your senses as you enter the atrium, I have seen... More

We visited the Tropiquaria today with our grand children aged 12 and 8.On looking at the review in the morning we almost didnt go but are so glad we did. Yes the building does look run down, but I presume it is listed. We felt all the animals were well cared for and many of them have been rescued from... More
