  • nice zoo though old fashioned cages make me feel that animals are not so well treated. many people made it too difficult to visit  more »
  • Great zoo but extremely overcrowded. No social distancing, low levels of masks. It felt wreckless. I wouldn't recommend it.  more »
  • Wonderful zoo. Lots to see. The animals are well cared for & looked happy & content. Visitors can stroke the animals & feed them (giraffes, zebras, lamas, goats etc). My children & I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well worth a visit.
  • Excellent zoo!!! It was super busy but queues were well managed and with a little patience you will get around in about 4/5 hours depending on crowds and your personal preference. There were plenty of toilets and food/drink stops and the range of animals was great. Everything appeared clean and well tended, all in all a fantastic day out and well worth the price.
