I can remember visiting Wetheriggs many years ago when it was a pottery - what a delightful experience that was! However, things have changed... Having been in the area visiting other local attractions we decided to have a look and see what the new "Zoo" had to offer. We were bitterly disappointed to say the least. Based loosely around the old pottery itself, the "animals" on show were pretty much running free and most in poor health/condition. A lot of areas were out of bounds to the "general paying public". I have since found out this is because Wetheriggs Zoo have actually had their Zoo Licence revoked. On that basis, I am not entirely sure how they can open to public and charge for entry in the first place? I can see why this decision has been made though, given the conditions the animals are kept in and the fact it appears staff actually live in the gift shop/admissions area! I really would not recommend this as a place to visit.
