We visited the attraction today (27th May) and our 2 children, ages 9 and 6 had a thoroughly enjoyable day. We benefited from a groupon voucher which halved the entry fee, however we feel that at full price it would have still been excellent value for money. (The savings allowed us to spend a little more in the shop on... More

I hadn't read anything about this attraction on Trip Advisor and I am so glad I didn't as the negative comments are not deserved at all!. In this day and age of expecting everything on a plate it is no surprise that some people feel they should be wowed at every turn!, well me and my 4 year old son... More

A few of these reviews are disgraceful! I have been to tropiquaria more times than I can count with my son and when I was a child , and there's no problens with it! The animals are all cared for at a high standard, they have 2 beautiful parrots indoors that sit on perches, the red one is the oldest... More

Thank you so much for those nice words.Yes we have had a few depressing comments recently, and some from people whom we have reason to believe haven't even visited! There are some other naughties going on too, but those are subject to a major investigation which I'll put out to Tropiquaria friends on FB when its complete. The good news... More

I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone its a waste of money you are able to walk around the whole building and outside within an hour there was hardly any animals, empty exhibits and the fish that was there you can find in any local fish shop. My child was extremely bored and got upset when seeing the animals as... More

Went there over the weekend, arrived at 2pm. By 330pm we had been round the place twice and were completely bored! We managed to get a money off coupon from Groupon, but we still considered it to be over priced. As we arrived we joked that the outside looked like some sort of run down abandoned mental hospital - this... More

This review has in fact been removed, by trip advisor, once and then resubmitted in a slightly altered form, and from a mobile telephone. As with any zoo we do like people who believe that they are seeing problems to talk to us; sometimes the explanations deal with areas of biology that the visitor was not aware. Where there is...

I've visited twice now, both times with a group of amateur photographers, and each time we've spend in excess of 3hrs at the zoo. The main building is a fascinating relic of the 1930s and as such is listed, meaning the owners are bound by legislation that allows them to alter very little - and bearing this in mind they...

Really enjoyed our day out. We had lovely customer service from the start, a warm welcome from the owner and his cuddly dog when we got to the entrance. Good food and friendly staff within the cafe. We had a relaxing look around, all sorts of animals to see from a range of monkeys to sea animals. The animal showing... More

Booked through Groupon whilst away on holiday, so it was only £9.00 for an adult and a child. I felt this was good value for money. Arrived at 10:30am and had a look round, then went on to do some feeds with the kids. We stayed until 2:30pm, would have stayed longer if the weather was better as the outdoor... More
