A good day out to keep kids amused and see different animals etc. Reasonable prices. Cafe was reasonable also. Its not a massive place so 2 to 3 hours covers it. But overall enjoyable.

In fact the pirate play area is wheelchair accessable if you ignore the steps (the original BBC steps from the 1930s and approach via the agouti enclosure or through the gardens to the East of the entrance. The only area... More
