We had a great time at the zoo there is plenty to see and do here and our son loved it. He especially liked the sealion show and the dinosaur walk. The park was very clean and tidy and the staff were all very friendly and professional. We would definitely visit again

We visited on a very hot day in September, 2 seniors, 1 adult and a 7 month old. It is all very well laid out, and numerous signposts are very well positioned. The high vantage points are very good, we came face to face with a giraffe (no mean feat!), and with the monkeys. The petting area is a fun... More

Had a great day, it was lovely to see the orangutans settled into their new home. A particular highlight was the gorrilas, their enclosure is amazing. We also loved getting up close to the elephants. We got a glimpse of the new tiger cubs too - so cute! It did get quite busy around some of the viewing enclosures, especially... More

Nicely laid out zoo with all areas disabled friendly. Plenty of seating and picnic areas, food is standard burger/hotdog/chips fare..quite expensive. Several animal feeding times and shows throughout the day..allow several hours to appreciate the whole zoo. Good value day out..if you dont buy too much food onsite!

Very nice, clean zoo. Loads of animals to look at, my favourites were the tigers and the giraffes. The amazonia part was really fun with the monkeys running about everywhere. Would definitely go again.
