Grandparents, parents and two grandchildren aged 5 and 18 months all loved Tropiquaria so much we wished we’d visited earlier in the week so we could have taken advantage of the low readmission charge!

Wonderful small animal zoo, which contained a number of speicies I had never heard of before, like a potoroo and kinkajou, which has the longest tongue I have ever seen! Although the site is small there are a good range of feeding opportunities and encounter...More

Don't let the appearance put you off. I really enjoyed it. Lots of animals to see and a talk every 30 mins or so at different locations. Good value!

I visited Tropiquaria a few days ago and paid for the 'Keeper For The Day' experience. I can't praise the staff highly enough. From the very start, they were friendly and welcoming. As I visited during a weekday at a quieter time of year, there...More

We visited the zoo as a family, it was very disappointing to say the least. The place is tired and in need of some serious improvements in just about every department. The animal enclosures are needing repair and the animals are few and far between....More
