Visited on the way home from Pagham where we had been on holiday. Variety of animals and reptiles to see along with the butterflies and birds. Spent a few hours here and used the picnic area for lunch where the little one enjoyed the play...More

Where can I start.! Bored donkeys,in a barren concrete enclosure. They were so bored that they were eating their way through the fence. Leaving nails exposed. One of the giant rabbits had bad ears and the guinea pigs appeared to have mange. I climbed into...More

My boyfriend and I came here, as we love anything to do with animals, and were mainly attracted by the butterfly house and open aviary. These two things most certainly didn't disappoint! The open aviary was light and spacious, and it was lovely to see...More
