For the money you pay there's plenty there and there are expanding as we speak and if you pay double entrance fee you get a years free pass. Win, win. Oh yeah free massive bouncy castle the kids can stay all day.

The penguins and meerkats drew me here again. I wish more people would visit Blackbrook as it deserves more recognition. Its been through the mill recently and taken alot to stay open. Fantastic birds. Lovely grounds. Amazing staff and very caring and knowledgable too.
