My husband and me went yesterday and it was brilliant! It is family oriented but a great day out for all! The majority of the events are outside so the weather does affect it a little but there are also indoor events. There are opportunities to handle some of the animals and birds and I had an owl fly to... More

Great value place to visit. There are plenty of things to do with all the animals, birds, talks and the outdoor play area. Lots of interactive things for children to do as you walk through the different sections. The animals are very well looked after and the man who did the talks was very enthusiastic about what he was doing.... More

This is an excellent value for money day out for young children approx 5 to 10 year olds. My grandchildren always loved this place and we bought an annual pass which worked out to be a really cheap and fun day out throughout the year for them.

If you like animals then it won't disappoint. Not a bad price at all, lots to look at, not just butterflies. Cafe was too small for the number of visitors but it was a weekend and good weather so probably not the usual footfall. The butterfly house was also quite hard to get around because of the number of people.... More

Great place for kids (young and old!). Maybe not a full day out but certainly 3-4 hours worth of good family entertainment.
