I know there are some negative reviews of this but I really feel it's unfair. I love Plantasia - there are plenty of smaller reptiles, butterflies, birds and a huge range of trees. My children loved the Rainforest hut and the carnivorous plants. As an...More

Alot of the plants are dying or dead, the animals are in a depressing state. Theres a newt without a tail, a bearded dragon missing part of his, turtles with an inadequate lamp in a tank that is way too small, dirty fish tanks (with...More

This unusual glasshouse on Parc Tawe looks impressive enough but, despite the efforts of whoever manages it, it somehow seems a bit tired and dreary. The scruffy-looking macaws said it all. Our grandchildren never really got excited about many of the rather tired and dusty-looking...More

bit boring plants looked scruffy, maybe the wrong time of year (sept) few animals of interest, cheap enough entry, no café for tea and cake for the grand children.

We went to see Plantasia many years ago, and returning to the area with an additional family member (our little lad) we decided to visit again. Entry was cheap and staff helpful, but the place is a lot smaller and, frankly, less interesting that it...More

Visited here yesterday and it was lovely! The meerkats were very entertaining to watch. Very cheap to visit and a great place to go when the weather not great. They have other animals besides the meerkats including parrots, lizards, parrots and turtles. Very easy to...More

Torrential rain all day forced us to find indoor activities. We went to Plantasia. It's a nice little place but it doesn't keep you busy for that long. We had a good look at everything and did some stuff in the craft area and we...More

This place is great! £4 and you get to see lots of tropical plants, have very pretty walk all around. AND! There are animals too! Meerkats and tortoises in the entrance, koi and terrapin in the main pond, a few well stocked fishtanks, chipmunks, tarantulas,...More

We arrived and found the small venue and the entrance price was reasonable. Lady on desk was polite and talked to me as I’m blind. The guy on the desk explained a quiz to our son and we went exploring. Great tropical forest with ample...More

It's not very big and doesn't take a lot of time to explore. Nevertheless there is interesting flora and fauna collection. Good for rainy days
