We took our grandaughter to this zoo and she loved it. So did we. The animals were well looked after and it was very well set out. Plenty of toilets and places to eat. A very good zoo.

Took my 18m old daughter on monday. We absolutley loved it. Well looked after. Food is pricey. £16 for chips sausage n gravy. A pie. A cake. A pint of strongbow and a coke. But the park makes it worth while.
