Attended here on Saturday 22nd February 2014. We were told before we went it was going to be free, but they asked for a donation. There were 7 of us that went to the Zoo and we had to pay £15 entry fee each! **YES, £15 EACH** it took is 2 1/2 hours to drive to the Zoo, so this was a massive kick in the teeth. We felt compelled to pay, after travelling all that way.
When we got inside, the signs were still up explaining how we had entered for free, the Zoo cost £5,000 a day to run and asking for donations (yes, we paid at reception and got a receipt, so it is genuine).
The Zoo itself is alright. I would have liked to have seen the animals in larger enclosures, but the weather might not be right for that.
There was a 4 day old Giraffe there which was very cute! Worth a trip, but beware of cost!!!
