“Lovely place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We spent a lovely couple of hours here. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable. It was nice too see the penguins wandering around wherever they wanted. The otters and fur seals have lovely large enclosures, and they have been designed to look like their natural habitat.

I would definitely recommend a visit here, and good value for money.

“Amazing penguins!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

As a big fan of penguins, I thought that living coasts was an amazing half day out. It is a great place to go in bad weather as about half of the attraction is undercover. The penguins are the stars of the show - compared to other penguin exhibits I have seen at other zoo attractions this is far and away the best. Would definitely recommend the talks from the very knowledgable staff - it really added to our overall experience. Would definitely go again!

Had a great time at living coast, very well priced. Make sure you catch the penguin feed. Lots to do in local area but this was one of the best attractions by far.
