  • A great place to visit if you are an animal lover. My daughter loves the owl show. We have annual memberships, sponsor Ethel the eagle owl, and visit frequently. There is a comprehensive collection of native British Wildlife including Scottish wildcats, otters, red squirrels, weasels, polecats, stoats, deer and rabbits. The staff are passionate about the animals and clearly care very much about conservation. The restaurant is reasonably priced, as is the gift shop. Highly recommended.
  • Brilliant day out, don't be fooled by what you see (or don't see!) in the entrance area. Once you get outside it's amazing with well thought out enclosures for the different animals. The staff are all super friendly and knowledgeable and there are plenty of talks and feeding times when you can see the animals up close. Brilliant way to get the kids interested in helping our British wildlife.
