Such a lovely Zoo! Great animals and really enjoyed the shows - the chimps were very entertaining. At just under £21 for a family of 4 it is fantastic value for money! Would highly recommend. The views are also amazing! We will be returning.

A really great little zoo. Lots of walking up and down hills so take comfortable shoes but the animals are in great enclosures and look so happy. Particularly the little otters who run about and play in a big group.

It was ok, nothing amazing but it was December! We stayed an hour, many things were closed. Will return in the summer to see if it's better, good potential for the summer.

We spent a full day here whilst on our honeymoon and had a wonderful day. When you first enter we didn't think there was much there but how wrong we were. There were so many favourites which included the Red Pandas which were just stunning,...More

I've always liked this zoo, the views are nice and it has a pleasant atmosphere. Not a lot of animals , but the enclosures are a lot better these days. Kids will love the play area.

We have visited this Zoo a couple of times and found it an enjoyable enough place to spend a few hours. The zoo itself is a little out of the way and is a steep drive if you go in a car. There is a...More
