Absolutely superb, the Gerald Durrell Story is really good to see the photos, notes and memorabilia over the years. It is wonderful to see the changes over the years and work that has gone into preserving so many endangered species. Man has a lot to answer if the destruction of so many animals natural habitat.

Really reviewing the restaurant not the attraction (though the attraction is fantastic) Had lunch there today and the food was to say the least exceptional. October is Tennerfest month and 3 courses of good quality food there was definitely something to write about. Service was good and atmosphere pleasant. No admission fee needed to get into the Restaurant.

This is a must see when in Jersey. There is a vast array of animals to see. Try and catch the keepers talks as they are interesting, informative and at times thought provoking. The section on the man himself was also very good.

The entry fee is very reasonable. The food in the restaurant was excellent. I could quite easily spend a whole day in the park.
