Only found out about this place by chance. Took a 5 year old who loved it. They had demonstrations and talks on and an Easter quiz. Many more animals than I expected and all looked well cared for. Staff were very helpful and knowledgable. Isn't open all the time so check beforehand.

**check the website or Facebook page for opening days/times** As this is part of the college it is not open everyday. Good selection of animals. The zoo is looking really clean and fresh with obvious improvements to the enclosures and maintenance. Good to spend an hour or two. Could do with a shop or cafe to buy food and drinks.

This is a nice little zoo which really caters for the small children. Lots to see but in a small area and with a very friendly atmosphere.

This was my second visit to this lovely little Zoo and once again we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Only down side was it seemed a little run down from my previous visit a few years ago, a lot of things overgrown, lots of nettles on the edge of the enclosures and the signposting was very poor, if I hadn't been before...
