“Terrific Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Not the biggest and best wildlife place I've visited, but certainly the best value.

There's plenty to see and it's very well presented/laid out. At £3.40 an adult you can't go wrong for an hour or so.

One word of advice though, bring a vest and some shorts!

“Great place to visit on a rainy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I have been going on the odd occasion for many years and it is not an all day attraction, but a couple of hours to kill place.

“Not quite the Eden Project...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

...but it's worth a visit and the kids love it, providing you don't stay too long. It's cheap too..good idea to link it in with a trip to the park. Park has loads to offer. Can't help feel a little sorry for the animals though...

“Nice Clean Shop, Shame about the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

we drove here from manchester for a nice afternoon out with our daughter, after reading some other views about it being dirty especially for some of the fish, I was disappointed to find out that they were right, also it took us about 30 minutes to get around the who place, then spent longer in the shop than we did inside the tropical rooms

“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Great little place, lots to see, but its very hot and humid, especially on a hot day.
Good price.
Nice way to spend a couple of hours.
