We visited the Wild Animal Adventures on our way to 4 Days Holiday in Durham. The Boys enjoyed the Petting Section and overall Site was ok if a little cramped.

Visited many times and always enjoy it. The handling area is great and I very much enjoyed cuddling the baby piglet.

Visited midweek, two adults and a 3 year old, £12 entry along with a bag of feed, which I thought was good. A wide range of the smaller animals to be seen, free flying bats, colourful tree frogs, plenty of interest. Only a few animals...More
