Have been coming here all my life and always have an amazing time. Have watched the updates and renovations over the years and can see passion that the staff all have for the place.

The zoo itself isnt too bad as far as zoos go. Some animals look bored senseless. The restaurant near The Castle is very expensive. I dont know how families could afford to come to the zoo, and eat. I paid £3 for a coffee. If you pay good prices, you dont expect to sit at a table full of rubbish.... More

Visited this great zoo again in February 2015, we had pretty up and down weather but it didn't dampen my spirits. The zoo has been - and is still - undergoing renovations which are improving the guest facilities such as the shop and also a lot of the animal enclosures. The tigers Daseep and Joao are must see's as they... More

Poor looking animals in a run down zoo. The shop is also a poor thing as they sell rubbish which did not impress us.

Dudley Zoo is so underrated it's a brilliant day out. My nephews and nieces love the place it's got loads of variety and the staff are fab. It's even better when the sun is out but I suppose we have got to let the zoo off for this. Nice places to eat aswell and don't forget the castle a great... More

This zoo and castle are very nice. I took my 6 year old son and he really enjoyed it. I would say pick up a guide map as you enter as I forgot and landed up at the top via the little train and would have struggled to find my way round if I hadn't found maps dotted around the... More

The zoo and castle provides a good family day out. The zoo fell into a bit of disrepair in recent years but is now being renovated and now has many more attractions. The castle is a great place for a picnic on a sunny day.
