“Don't Miss It”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We visited with a large party of friends and children over the new year - our expectations were greatly exceeded. Wider range of animals than expected and all were very well looked after. Kids loved feeding the monkeys and lemurs and also getting the chance to hold a snake. It's a little expensive, but the staff are very helpful and truly dedicated to the animals. Definitely worth a visit and definitely worth supporting. Les Jones

“DO NOT VISIT”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

very very small and expensive, hardly any animals of which are kept in very poor conditions! rude owners, may as well just have a look from the fence outside..see just about as much as paying to enter.

“Loved it”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Visited here while at a local caravan park and me, my partner and kids loved it. There was a good choice of animals and got to feed them so a very good experience. We also got to hold some snakes. Never seen that happen at Drayton Manor. Will def go back

“Brilliant zoo- close proximity to animals & lots to see”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We visited the animalarium in October 2012 and found it to be a really good experience. As most of the animals are unwanted pets &/or are used to human contact, we found that we got a much more personal experience feeding the monkeys & smaller animals which was a real pleasure & lovely for children. Staff were friendly,seemed to have a real interest in animal's welfare & to really care about the place. Plenty of opportunity to get interactive with the reptile talks & feeding times. There was a small reasonably priced cafe & play areas. We were surprised at quite how many attractions there were - it looks quite small from the outside.
Although clearly not benefitting from a marketing budget & slick advertising etc, we found it to be a really good attraction not ruined by its size or success as larger zoos often are. Highly recommended
