Such good value compared to other attractions. We arrived when it opened and left when it closed. The addition of the lego brick animals was the icing in the cake. We always go to the left and round, it's much quieter and by the time...More

My granddaughter,Iris, had such a nice day out that she thought she should leave a review. These are her thoughts. The animals all looked very healthy and cared for with plenty of space. The selection of animals was exciting and interesting, the giraffe feeding was...More

Wasn't anything extra. Went into the butterfly house and ants were getting out of the boxes and crawling all over the floor and there was no staff members around to inform. The whole park really needs a refurbishment! The toilets really need a clean and...More

First thing- make it clear between a donation and gift aid. It's a good visit overall, but £63 for a family visit including a donation is overcharging. £2.50 for the train- it's cheaper to walk. Take your own food or the Marwell money machine will...More
