This place was a gem for my children, it is filled with animals like the nocturnal exhibition, with bats, insects and even fish that commonly never see the light of day. Then... read more

We went here with my parents and 2 children (3 and 2 years old). Brilliant day out. It was fun watching the feeding sessions and plenty of space to walk around. In a lovely venue - we played in the little parks and watched the boats on the lake. Perfect for a family day out.

We made a special trip to visit this zoo, but we were not overwhelmed. The indoor enclosure with free flying birds was interesting, but access to the open air exhibits was not great. The zoo was very popular with large groups of very young school children, who did nothing to improve our experience. The waitress service restaurant was a bonus,... More

This zoo is really nice due to the proximity you can have with the animals and the diversity of plants and animals. Inside the zoo you can enter into a huge "bird cage" and touch the colorful parrots. If you visit this zoo you absolutely have to see the animals receiving their meal, so cute and funny. But, on the... More

This place was a gem for my children, it is filled with animals like the nocturnal exhibition, with bats, insects and even fish that commonly never see the light of day. Then there are birds flying free around the place, which you might note as you walk around. There are alligators, piranha, giant catfish and the likes. There are frogs,... More

The rain didn't stop us wanting to make the most of our holiday so we searched for somewhere with a bit of indoor activity for our Infant school aged children. After a tricky start as the sat nav couldn't find it, we eventually arrived at the leisure area. It's a huge lake surrounded by some woodland. Various water activities can... More

Visited with a 4 year old. Very varied animals inside and outside which kept him busy and interested the whole time. The hands-on time with the goats was great as was the chance to see normally very shy red pandas in action. Crocs and alligators, penguins, otters and fruit bats all proved fascinating!

Crocodiles, enormous fish, huge bats, otters, alligators, etc etc. Amazing space and you feel that you are in amongst the animals. In one section you have birds landing on you to feed from little pots. We ate in the restaurant which was very reasonable and very good. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The facilities for people in wheelchairs... More
