Conditions that some of these animals were kept is horrendus, the state of the penguins water was disgusting and the otters looked to be dire conditions! Nobody was around either! more »
Perfect, pocket sized zoo which you can easily enjoy for a couple of hours, or make a day of it and chill into a slower pace enjoying all the variety of animals. Shop and cafe are excellent, and handy location. Great for little ones.
A wet day couldn't be helped, but there were at least two large groups of school children on a walk around so when there was feeding time etc, you couldn't get close to see. Would have been nice to have been warned at the entrance. Limited appeal when raining as obviously most of the animals stay out of the rain when they can, although there were animals to see, because it is quite a small zoo, options are limited. Clean, tidy, great for family days out, just better to wait for a dry sunny day.
