Didn't research the place, just saw it off the roundabout and thought that might be good.
Walking up to it was concerning as it looks a bit strange, once we went in we realised what a great little place it was! Loads of animals and...More
Have visited a few times over the years but would not go back.
The whole place looks tired and unkempt and a lack of investment clearly shows.Admission prices are expensive for what you get so all in all very disappointing.

Staff are great clearly love...More
It was suggested to us to visit, we were a bit doubtful but this was a brilliant days entertainment. Firstly the building although looking quite drab is an iconic 1933 building with alot of history of its own. Once inside the range of unusual animals...More
