We went to this attraction, close to home, as a birthday treat for our grand-daughter, who was five. Her mother arranged this, we paid for ourselves, and thought it good value for money, with plenty to see, demonstrations of falconry with a variety of raptors, owls, harris hawks, and more, and close encounters with most exhibits. Our favourites were the meerkats and penguins, but all were well signed and easy to explain to children. the lemur enclosure was an excellent example of how to introduce visitors into the enclosure for closer contact with the animals. Considering how small an area the zoo covers, there's a great feeling of space, and none of the enclosures look constricted. Getting there by car is a little complicated, more than 4 cars queueing causes a traffic jam, which must be a pain for the neighbours, but there is a free mini bus service from the train station and town centre. There is a cafe and restaurant, and snack facilities, we took our own picnic, which was not a problem, and there was plenty of choice of places to eat it.
