  • Came as part of a school group with three reception classes earlier in the year. The education centre was really good and provided a lot of quality information for the children though passing a dead fox around didn't sit well with me personally... The rest of zoo leaves a lot to be desired. The orangutans looked positively distressed when we saw them and it was disturbing to watch though the children won't have thought anything of it, the adults in the group were upset by it. When I visited the dinosaur land was also being renovated so hopefully that will inject something into the zoo once finished.

  • Had to come here after being recommended. And I believe I did the right job it made a Hugh smile on my sons face. He absolutely loved the monkeys 🐒, he really enjoyed his day out and wants to come again. I am ready to go again in the summers as it was a bit cold.. it has a good selection of food and drinks at reasonable prices.. my sons favourite zoo

  • Nice little zoo. Plenty to see and do. Lots of talks and 'shows' through the day. Nice selection of animals all looking very well cared for! The sea lion show was great! The whole zoo generally is clean, tidy and well looked after. There are plenty of opportunities to get up close to some of the animals. I Would advise avoiding the lake view cafe though. Decent selection of food available, however it's not great quality and is over-priced, not especially clean either. My advice, take a packed lunch for the family and save yourself the disappointment (and a few pounds). Easy to find, plenty of parking available, but stop at main entrance with regular busses. Overall, a great day out for the whole family!

  • Amazing, massive zoo and a great selection of animals. I especially enjoyed visiting all the primates. The canteen and food courts were very expensive for what was on offer and the tables were dirty and service was lax, I would reccomend taking a packed lunch or eating somewhere else. The staff were great and other than the weather it was an excellent day out.

  • We got the food package for a family of 4. Although this was good value it can only be used in the one cafe. The queue in this cafe was 30 - 45 min. There was also no where to sit so we had to try and stand up to eat lunch with 3 small children whilst other people were eating their picnic that they didn't purchase in the food hall. The animals were enjoyable but the seagulls were a real pain. They should have some way of deterring them.
