Lovely park with enough to keep you busy for 4-5 hours. Steep hills in some places (not suitable for those who struggle to get about or have breathing difficulties). Excellent for the little ones, the dinosaurs look almost real life and my 3,5 and 8...More

Went here on a coach trip. Had about five hours - tbh three would've probably been enough. Main concerns are about the zoo aspect - some of the enclosures are just way too small imho especially the sealion tank. Lions looked bored as well. Sealion...More
