An interesting day regardless of the weather. Younger children love being able to get up close to the wildlife. It's so interesting to see the butterflies, turtles etc. The cafe is reasonable and there is a play area for the children. Would definitely recommend.

Good place to take the kids. If you live in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster or Barnsley it is on the door step but a good day wherever you live
