Great for kids...lots to see and do, playing out if the weather's good, great bird show. Also good indoor play if weather bad! Not fussed on animals, quite old and dirty areas...but I guess animals are stinky! Entrance chargeable expensive for family especially as the main focus is children's play! Food basic but kids insist these have some of the... More

We visited with 3 adults and 4 children, ages 7, 5, 3 and 4 months. It was a child day and muddy but we all had a lot of fun. Places like this are what you make it. Having been to other similar places across the country, this place is good value for money. Our kids liked the animals, loved... More

Brought my 3 year olds here, been here a few times as they like it here . Had to use the toilet on this visit , It would have been more hygienic if I just let them wet themselves, the entire toilet was flooded in urine. A quick look at the cleaning schedule shows they clean them once every 4... More

Visited here for my sons 5th birthday. Having been January we were aware that most of the outdoor things would be closed but this wasn't a problem as there is plenty to do indoors. We visited the animals and the children had lots of fun in the huge indoor play area. It was fairly busy considering the time of year... More
