We visited in the past week. Thankfully it was a nice day and not too cold at all. We started off with a quick walk around to see what was there, then onto the cafe for some food and a coffee. The ladies in the cafe are very warm and friendly and the food is very decent and well priced.... More

There for a nice family day out. As we walked around the park i couldnt help but notice that some of the enclosures were quite small for the type of animal being housed, for example the wolves enclosure was far too small for 5-6 wolves. Its not a big park in the first place, and it is undulating path is... More

Visited here with two adults and three children aged 5-9. Having not been here for a couple of years and being "local" I am a little worried about leaving a review with an honest opinion after the defensiveness and aggressive response by management in previous reviews but here goes! We came on a cold autumn weekend day, therefore it was... More

Really fun day out. Animal park with extras, including dinosaurs and Egyptian tomb. We watched a talk about Wolves, which was very interesting and delivered by an engaging member of staff. You also get a chance to feed Meerkats and see them up close. You can spend a whole day here. Quite hilly though, fine for us, but perhaps something... More

I visited here a number of years ago with my sons ( who are now all grown up!) so I was really looking forward to bringing my two daughters here. As it was close to Halloween the park staff had pulled out all the stops and created a really spooky atmosphere in the mummies tomb, my girls were suitably spooked!... More

We park extra to do a meet and great with the sea lions and I would definitely recommend this. We had Morgan the sea lion and he... More
