Initially questioned the high entrance fee (£50 for 2 adults and a 3 year old) but, having now visited think it was totally justified. We spent 5 hours there and did not see everything. We all had our favourites - could have watched the orang-utans all day and the viewing area which allowed you to see underwater in the giant otters enclosure was really clever. Food was expensive but they had lots of picnic areas (including an indoor one) so would be really easy to take your own food and make it cheaper. There were also a couple of children's play areas. We hired a buggy for our 3 year old (we don't own a pram any more) which was a good move as there is a lot of ground to cover.
