Rather expensive. Food overpriced. Perhaps better to take a packed lunch

Although the entrance fee seems a lot, you can spend all day here and there is so much to see and do so you can really get your moneys worth. My daughter had her 6th birthday party here this year which I would definitely recommend and was excellent value for money. The staff were very attentive and great with the kids. On a nice day there are falconry displays plus much more. we have been a few times and the kids never tire of it, they love it. Well worth a visit iver the holidays for a great day out.

Enjoyed every minute, plenty to see and the butterflies are beautiful, landing on our hands, the falconry show was astonishing, and the parrot show, the food in the cafe, was very good and not too expensive, the admission fee is a bit high, but it goes towards the keep of the animals, so we didnt mind, we will be visiting again, loved it

Took the Grand kids aged 5 and 7 and we had a great day out The new play area was good and the bird displays were very entertaining. Everything was clean with lots of hand washing stations to keep clean after petting the animals.

Meerkats were very entertaining with there cute young ones. Meal worms and fruit were available to buy so you could feed the animals, a bit expensive I thought especially as you were saving them the job of feeding there animals.

The butterfly house was amazing with lots and lots of beautiful butterfly's flying around and sometimes landing on you. Its very hot and humid in here so you wont need a jumper. We arrived early about 10:15 so it wasn't to busy in here, later on people were queuing to get in.

We enjoyed our visit and would probably go again.
