4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have taken my granddaughter to this place several times and she just loves it.The staff are always very helpful and knowledgeable and are always on hand to answer any questions.It does not cover a large area but the size of the place is efficiently put to use.The catering facilities are very good along with the displays and side shows etc.

“Good all round fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The place is a lovely day out for all the family. It is informative not just about the animals but the environmental issues where the animals are from. The daily hands on shows give children the chance to get up close to the animals. It is friendly, easy access with something for everyone.

“"Animal Magic!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I think the whole place is brilliant. I took the kids the first time and then the second time I just took my husband! It's brilliant. I love animals and there are lots of them. The chickens wander around oblivious and it's all hands on. We sat and had our sandwiches after watching the bird show and it was a great day out. It's one of those places you could go to again and again.
