......for my nephew.
We were staying in nearby Faversham for the week and it was my nephew's 8th birthday. As he is an animal lover, we went to Howletts and had a wonderful day. There were 14 of us aged from 4 - 75 and we all loved it.
We paid with Tesco Clubcard vouchers which was brilliant as it would have worked out very expensive otherwise. The staff were really helpful - we left a birthday cake and decorations at the entrance which they came and picked up and when we got to the function room it was already decorated and laid up for us. The food was OK - not particularly healthy but OK for a one off.
The animals were a bit lacking in visibility to start with - especially the big cats, but they had come to life by the time we made our way back to the entrance at about 5.30pm, and we were lucky enough to see a tiger playing in the pool. We spent ages watching the gorillas and went to a talk about them - how fascinating are they?!
All in all, a great day out.
