Nice small zoo to visit with young children. Came to see Father Christmas. Good grotto but FC needed wig glue! Lots of questions needed to be answered! Kids were able to do craft which made it worth the money.

We were lucky enough to arrive in time to see nearly all of the animals being fed. Really good overall atmosphere. The perfect romantic day out.
