Nice place for the kids, but expensive for limited content. Limited assistance/information from the staff we tried to talk with, but maybe we were just unlucky with who we tried

Visited on the weekend and we love the butterfly house. Lots to do for the children and lots to interact with. Our favourites are the meerkats, the children love feeding them. All staff friendly and always happy to help.

This venue is probably better suited to children. Lots of plastic dinosaurs spread around the park plus a reasonable collection of small animals and birds. It's all rather gimicky with witches cottage and the like. The butterfly collection is ok, but not as extensive as...More
