  • Visited the zoo with my 3 year old and the wife, weather was atrocious,all three of us soaked to the skin. But what a brilliant place to go,animals so well looked after and loved,plenty of room in their habits. The staff so friendly and informative and the food was reasonably priced and tasty. A return visit is a must. Well worth a visit.
