“Great Day out!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I (43) have not been to a Zoo in years!!! Really enjoyed visiting this zoo - need 4-5 hours if you are with kids.
Loved the Giraffe House - there is a baby giraffe to see. The facilities for all the animals look great and the animals seem to be well taken care of!
Playground for the kids if they get bored of looking at the animals - that will definately burn up their energy.
Ate in the restaurant which served decent food at normal prices!!!
Would definately go back again!

“Great range of animals”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We spent four hours at the zoo and really enjoyed the varied and sometimes unusual animals in captivity. The elephant enclosure is immense and the Hippo house full of interesting birds, bats and fish! Take the kids!

“One of the best zoos we have ever visited”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Not over priced, easy to get too, well laid out and with some of the widest variety of animals we have seen in a zoo, well worth a visit could easily have spent the day, all level walking well signed and with a clear route, lots of close ups with the animals, well worth a visit

“A good zoo.”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is a lovely zoo with lots of animals and good facilities. There is nothing to fault. Monday is zoo day so it is the cheapest day to go. Or you can get a discount with the little train which is a good option.
