You have to pay for the car... More

Went to the zoo on Sunday and had a great time. Sure I had been here as a youngster, but couldn't remember and was easy to spend the whole day here. On arrival, we were met with signs informing us that the car park was pay & display so I feared the worse, but at £2.50 its just about acceptable.... More

Lovely zoo, well set out and easy to walk round. A wide variety of animals to see and the talks/shows were very good. We took our two children (10/5) who were entertained all day. Helpful friendly staff. Easy to spend the full day at this zoo.

One of the cleanest zoo' s I have ever been too. Animals all have very good sized, clean enclosures. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good variety of food in the cafe, particularly liked the salad bar. Was slightly disappointed that a lot of the extras were only on at the weekend, my son had been wanting to feed the... More

We were walking through Stanley Park when we saw a sign for the zoo, we thought why not go and have a look.... The zoo is fairly expensive and they charge you extra for a guide book! The zoo is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours, we liked the dinosaur themed part of the zoo, the models need... More
