Not much to say really, people who love animals would absolutely love this place. If you don't love animals, well then zoos aren't really the place for you and all zoos are going to bore you. Basically, you like animals= great place full of a wide variety of animals. You don't like animals= boring.

Plenty to see and do, and the zoo is upgrading all the time. Food court was a bit expensive and chaotic.

You can easily spend the whole day here - I'd also recommend South Lakes Zoo if you can drive that far for a good day out

Easy to get to on bus or car, we got the bus from the shops and it takes you right outside the zoo. There is no hills as everything is level which makes the walking a lot easier . Great zoo has elephant, giraffes, lions, tigers and huge tortoises and many more animals.

Staff were very friendly. The animal looked really well cared for and their homes were very clean and comfortable. The food options in the cafe were not great although they did a good coffee.
