This attraction is only a short ride by car, bus or taxi to the east of Leeds city centre. A few years ago it was free entrance but now the council run venue cost a modest sum to visit. There are various 'rooms' where different exhibits can be seen:
Meerkats in a glass-sided desert enclosure (no, not dressed like Aleksanda and Sergi !), reptiles in glass cases, masses of butterflies flying in a hot jungle-like room, tanks with fishes and other marine creatures, water features and many exotic plants.
Inevitably all this leads to a Shop where toys, books and other items can be purchased. Close-by there's a cafe, pub and restaurants, so several hours can easily be spent here.
It is also immediately opposite another major Leeds attraction - Roundhay Park - acres of space to wander around and two lakes, a cafe and a mansion house.
