Had an absolutely fantastic day here yesterday, too busy watching beautiful animals we hardly noticed the showers (it’s all they were, not pouring). I’m sure the animals are enjoying the slightly cooler temperatures to the recent hot summer weather they have been getting. Loved seeing...More

They have the 6 month old polar bear (who helpfully played in the water when we were there) but a number of the enclosures were empty. The lynx, wildcats and snow leopards are worth the visit and well displayed. The driving part of the park...More

I felt the prices were steep for what you get, I also felt pressured to accept the 10% additional fee, although I’m not sure what it was for. I didn’t think it was well sign posted and missed the car park so ended up doing...More

Tickets are £17.00 per adult and £9.95 per child. Under 3's Free. Well worth the money if the weather is good and and you plan to spend at least 4 hours. Take a picnic and make a day of it.
