Home made light lunches and delicious strawberry cream teas feature on the menu together with an extensively stocked gift shop with a ' new refurbished look ' for 2014! Personal, bespoke V.I.P. Packages include one-on-one encounters with penguins where meeting ' Dippy' the famous Isle of Wight penguin has to be top of your bucket list!

This is a beautiful place to visit, no matter how old you are. It is a really lovely walk around ponds, lakes and wildfowl. There is also other small animals here. You can buy duck food and hand feed the ducks. (I always do, it helps to keep these places open). At certain times you can see other animals being... More

This place is a real gem. The staff are friendly and very helpful and allow you to interact with the animals as much as possible. My wife was thrilled to hand feed the wallabies and the penguins. Oh, and the restaurant is really good too - well cooked fresh food with a smile...and the ice cream was lovely.

When you arrive you can see all the ducks through the gate waiting for you to go in with the bags of food. There are hundreds!! Brilliant fun feeding them.... They stand in your feet (which is a strange feeling if you have flip flops on!!) and they happily eat out of your hands. Was awesome!! When you run out... More

Visit with my two young boys (3&1 years old) both absolutely loved it. Feeding the ducks a major highlight of my 3 year olds day as was stroking and feeding the wallabies! Fantastic 'interactive' experience for children and adults! Food lovely too at onsite cafe. Would definitely recommend!

Visited with a school party of 10/11 year olds. They loved it! Feeding the birds, being able to touch them and other animals, watching the penguin show and even feed them some fish...perfect morning for 55 city kids! Would recommend for smaller children too, definitely worth a visit for a few hours
