Spent several hours here and really enjoyed it. Plenty to see in very well kept surroundings. The park is well spread out with birds and animals in the open and there are also lots out indoor rooms including a tropical rainforest. Well worth a visit.

Well kept gardens, really comfortable surroundings, seemingly well looked after residents. Brilliant for children, not bad for adults either. Really enjoyed the visit. Perhaps the train could stop near the lions and giraffes?
