Very unusual to have a training zoo near a small town. It is on the agricultural college campus of Reaseheath College and they are very used to children. Allow time to enjoy and directions can be obtained from the tourist office next to the bus station.

Had a lovely afternoon with my husband and 3 children - 9, 7 and 5. We were very sceptical about going after reading the other reviews but it kept the kids entertained for a good few hours and was reasonable at £15 for a family of 5. The students interacted with the kids and one got the ferrets out for... More

Been to reasheath zoo before and found it quite good, but our recent visit on Sunday 18th may "family fun day" was shocking... First thing you see is young people sheering sheep and they looked like they didn't have a clue! The way they handled them is unbelievable one got launched away once it had been shaved and looked like... More

We went today to see the lambing and the zoo. Yes to be fair in terms of the lambing you could have a long wait to see anything spectacular - that's nature for you. Lots of cure lambs to see, and lots of knowledgeable people to explain everything to you and the children around. And in terms of the zoo... More

Went here today paid for both lambing and zoo entrance £30 for 3 adults and 1 7 year old. The 'zoo' had very few animals to see, we seen handful of reptiles, few rabbits, tortoise, couple of deer, couple of wallaby, some owls and some meerkat. We were in the 'zoo' all of twenty minutes. Do not waste your money... More

It's not a huge zoo by any stretch but we went as part of the college open day & my daughters loved it - the students & staff were extremely knowledgeable and we had a great time

Reaseheath is excellent at certain things, apple weekends, the lambing in March. But the zoo? Perhaps for a few seven or eight year olds.Money would be better spent going to a real zoo. Sorry Reaseheath, but this does not cut it.

Lots to see and very helpful, chatty student keepers make the experience special. We enjoyed it and learned a great deal.

We went for a visit as my son loves running around mazes. We did not expect to find such an enormous maze! The maze covers 7 acres and has different themes each year (this year is the circus). We ran round it as my son wanted to get on the leader board at the entrance. It still took us over... More

I took my 9yo daughter and her friend for a sunny Saturday afternoon. I was no expecting much considering the low entry fee. There s a bit of a walk from the car park to the entrance which was a struggle for me as a heavily pregnant woman on a hot day. The animals were nothing out of the ordinary.... More
