I don't know how well known this place is. It don't think it is well advertised and even on TripAdvisor if you search attractions near cannon hill park this doesn't come up. However it is a great little place. Smaller than a zoo it is nevertheless still a good attraction with a reasonable range of animals (lots of monkeys). It... More

This is a wildlife park which is halfway to being a zoo. Low key but brilliant for children because the animals are more visible and accessible. Lots of more domestic animals and birds but also some exotic animals like monkeys, porcupines and red pandas which are really interesting and amusing. Really reasonable prices so much cheaper than an actual zoo,... More

We went as 2 couples, and a 3 year old. Each and every one of us had a amazing time!! The goat even came towards us for a head scratch! The monkey enclosure is a must see

It's an okay small zoo for families to visit that's reasonably priced. It has a new play area but it's not suitable for small children with no swings or slides. The cafe was disappointing and disorganised. Staff seemed very unhappy to be there, things like ice creams didn't have prices on. It's located next to cannon hill park so combine... More

This isn't a full sized zoo and we knew that before going, however, there is plenty to see here. The red pandas and the lynx are the main interest points and luckily both animals were on form the day we visited! I feel like there should have been more keepers around to speak to and ask questions to so it... More

We had no idea that such a tranquil place existed in the city centre. The animals were well cared for and there was plenty to see. Very good value for money as well!

Very well presented conservation center. The price is accessible and worth the visit. Very good variety of animals also including some unusual ones. The little one enjoyed it very much. The café with the small soft play area was a bonus! Loved it!

No alternative signage to indicate where... More
