My children have had wonderful parties here. They love the animal tour that's included and the party room is great for kids. Would recommend especially to parents of winter babies as its a good mix of indoor and outdoor activities if the weather is unkind

We visited for my son's second birthday, he loved it. We all had a great time, things to do for all ages but not big enough for a full day out

Visited today with my wife and granddaughter, thought the admission prices looked initially on the high side, but having spent a very enjoyable day there, I can assure you it was worth every penny. The parrot show, and falconry were particularly well done, the whole centre is kept very clean and tidy, and the staff were very friendly. The cafe... More

Reasonably priced, nice touch that you can buy a whole bunch of animal nibbles and feed certain creatures on the way round. Happy animals that look well cared for. Staff may need training in certain areas as several folks couldn't clarify for us which food we could feed to which animals as we misplaced the handy sheet detailing this that... More

I visited yesterday with my parents and my partner to celebrate my birthday and we had an amazing time! There are so any different animals to see and lots of educational opportunities (we did not come with children, but there are helpful information stands and activities all over the park so this would be a great place to bring children)....

I've visited the butterfly farm a few times with my grandchildren ranging in age from 8 to 18 months and have always had a great time. There's something for everyone and a great area for picnics with the family too.

It is a long time since we last visited the Tropical Butterfly House. It has grown tremendously but is an excellent place to visit. All the animals, butterflies, birds etc appear to be in really good condition. Their habitats are very clean and seem to answer some of the more obscure requirements for the animals on show e.g. where animals... More
