Absolutely brilliant.You can feed the elephants and giraffes and there is plenty to keep the children amused.Handling sessions are also available which is always popular with the children Plenty of places to eat.
Excellent place to spend a whole day. Best to take a picnic as food outlets were quite expensive. Lots to see and loads of play areas for the kids. We used Tesco Clubcard vouchers to pay for entry.
Some of the areas could be difficult for those who are not good with steep terrain - pushchairs and wheelchairs would struggle in some areas although there are warning signs as you are approaching them. The food prices are a bit steep so you can save lots of money by taking your own food and eating it in special picnic areas that the zoo have set aside. You might find you spend longer that you would expect as there is so much to see and it's a big site and very absorbing. If it's a cold day you can go inside into some of the heated enclosures to warm up along with the Iguanas, Orangutans etc!
Amazing well worth it but if buying tickets on the day they have ticket booths for you too buy them but card only so make sure u don't take all ur money out like I did too get the tickets and bet the ques
Amazing. Amount and variety of animals was great. The amount of work they do for conservation and upkeep of animals is fantastic, and the charity work they do is commendable. Feeding giraffes and elephants is a unique experience, one that should not be missed. Long live the big cats.
Amazing! We spent a full day here just over 8 hours. So much to see and do, I would highly recommend walking shoes or comfortable shoes, as there’s a lot of hilly bits and heaps of waking, but so much fun!
