A nice local wildlife park, there is always lots to see at this ever expanding wildlife park,. The highlights on this recent visit were the leopard cat kittens and raccoon dog pups.

The addition of all the baby animals, the talks and demos are all so interesting that I love it myself too. We will be visiting again soon to... More

Wonderful small zoo which is perfect for the kids to have a few hours of run around time. I got a yearly pass at £30 inc first visit so we can just pop to feed the ducks if we wish. Always expanding yearly and look forward to seeing new additions/ changes each time we go.
