We visited during February half term, and although the snow had (mostly) melted, I have to say the paths weren't up to much - tall wellies and a change of trousers a requirement. We also saw several cars getting a bit stuck in the mud in the car park. HOWEVER that was really the only downside - there was lots to see, and it felt like the animals were really close up - the enclosures don't make you feel like there are lots of fences etc in the way. We loved walking through the 'Madagascar' exhibit - with lemurs just posing on the railings, and I particularly love the baby crocodiles. We got good views of the lions and the rhinos, and enjoyed watching the varied birds skating on the ice as well as swimming!
There were lots of things to look at all the way round - and I imagine lots of lovely picnic spots in warmer weather. The restaurant food was a bit average, but overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable (if muddy) day!
