Stopped on a rainy day and saw a good variety of animals. I especially enjoyed seeing the white lipped monkeys and reptiles. Lacking on talks. But still good value for money for a day out and cafe just outside of York.

Interesting facts about plants and the person who explored and discovered them. Wheelchair friendly and the animals appear happy and content.
