This is a brilliant place with lots to do and see. The live shows/feeding times are great, they are informative for adults but also fun for kids. There is lots to see and do and you can easily spend a full day here.

Decided to go here as it was classed as #2 in Sheffield for attractions on TripAdvisor. Took us approx 45 mins from Derby and got there just as it opened. Plenty of car parking and access was pretty easy. Cost us approx £29 with food for the animals for 2 adults and a child. The place was well set out... More

Overpriced and over rated, the staff were rude and disinterested, the animals and birds were ok but not enough there to warrant the excessive entry price, cafe was extortionate, you could have as much fun visiting the local park.

A well laid out venue which allowed for each area to be a surprise as you walked round. The Lemur enclosure was the highlight (opened by Barry Chuckle!) and we visited this area twice to watch them leap about on the plants and each other. There are lots of other interesting animals to look at from chickens to Meerkats, Owls... More

Visited with our daughter and two and a half year old grandson who was completely absorbed by the displays and activities.Enjoyed being terrified by the "lion in a box" and had a great time trying the cars in the play area.Entrance fees are on the high side but well worth a visit.

We had a good family day out but you could easily get round the park in less than 1hr so pretty expensive really. The bird shows are good, play areas were clean & tidy. Cafe/Restaurant was expensive also, especially for a family of 5. Would visit again but maybe not for a few years.

Always a treat to take the kids. Always fun - whilst the price has risen over the years, the money clearly goes back into the site. My kids love the meerkats! There's plenty to do and it's well worth a day out!

Slightly dated, but excellent for families with young children. Well worth a trip out. Not many staff around but the ones we found were excellent. Was a little small for the money.
