Went here with my fiancee and it was fine for just two adults without children. It wasn't too busy when we went and we went in the summer! The train ride was pretty fun too, and the raccoons!!! yaaaay.

My sister and I went there and had a great afternoon. It's a bit shabby in places, but there are plenty of interesting animals and birds to see. The train is fun. Great adventure playground and sand pit for the children.

Visited during low season so appeared to be lacking quite a few animals. Only had time for a quick visit so were only there for a couple of hours though that was probably enough especially when it started raining! Variety of stuff to see, a bit muddy in places.

Plenty to do here but make sure its a nice day as it is all outdoors. Farm animals, the train and a nice walk around the gardens. Great family day out but not the cheapest.

Beale Park is full of surprises. There are lots of different animals in large enclosures clearly visible to the visitors. The variety is most impressive. All of the animals looked healthy and happy. There are interesting and informative boards everywhere so you can learn a little about what you are looking at. There are exercise stations for vigorous young people... More

Recently visited for the first time. £20 for the famiily, Nice playground, some animals and a Train. The gardens looked a bit bland and sparce. Don't feel like we had value for money. We won't be in a rush to return.

Many of the pens were empty and in general its in need of updating to the modern times! Disappointing as its such an great location with a large catchment area.

Two families of 4 Spent 5 hours wandering around the park, riding the train, hitting the play areas and picnicking in a nice broader setting Reasonably priced and plenty to do for a few hours probably best slightly out of season id imagine

A unique family time will be had at this lovely attraction on the banks of the river Thames just outside Pangbourne. The train is one of the top attractions for children and we spend much of our time going back and forwards from the station to climb on board again. £1 a ride is cheap for the pleasure it gives....

An animal experience thats not a Zoo, a ride on the train - you can do too. The pirates at bay or come and play. Grandma can sit and while away. Gardens galore for you to explore. On the day we went they had archery too (small additional charge) see website for details on other events and activities Beale Park... More
