Visited here last week for the first time in years. Seem the Zoo getting smaller & the gardens were nothing to speak off. The staff were great & very helpful. Ideal for small children, but not a lot there for a Zoo.

Great zoo with happy animals, our boys enjoyed the high ropes and zip wire at the end. We paid in the car park (March 2016) but it was a while ago and the man taking money was apparently a fraudster!!

There was no queue at all when we went and so we showed our confirmation codes and went straight through. It is set up with queue barriers and different tills for busy periods so I presume so if that was the case.
