Great day out

I took my 21 month old granddaughter for the day. It didn't rain and we had a great day wandering round the various zones. (I defy anyone to see the lot in one visit.) It is good to see the animals in large enclosures, even if it makes them hard to see sometimes. Also, it is a privilege to see wild animals so close to home - it brings home the reality of what Man is doing to these creatures in the wild. The sealion 'show', the giraffes being fed and the meercats were the most interesting animals for young spectators. I liked the wide choice of reasonably-priced food outlets, but lots of people had brought picnics.

Brilliant day out for children and adults

Such a lovely place, plenty of space for the animals to roam and you see so much throughout the day. Food is a bit highly priced but no reason you can’t take a picnic and sit by any number of the animal enclosures. Aquarium still needs work but the butterfly house on the other side slightly makes up for it. Wether you are a child or an adult there is plenty too see and do but be prepared for a long day walking I didn’t realise it was nearly 10 miles in total!

Plenty to see in nice surroundings

All types of animals on view, we saw most of them. Nice encloses plenty of space for the animals. My father needs a wheelchair to get around but there could be some improvement to some areas. Plenty of occasional seating throughout site along with `guides ` in various areas to assist (Nice touch!)

Enjoyed visit, all good except disappointment with the aquarium and butterfly House.

Brilliant but very chilly particularly at the top of the hill by the Penguins
