What a fantastic place! Such a great price and so much to see, each new room we went into we wouldn’t believe there was more again it was great. Brilliant range of animals & lots to see! Also great for all ages.

It's a nice place to visit with children. My 3 years old enjoyed watching animals, especially liked meerkats. A must see in Leeds.

I have taken my little niece and nephew a few times and they love it every time. So many animals to see (the meerkats are their faves) it’s so fun to look at all the butterflies with them. Lovely day out!

All of the tropical house is inside and the enclosures are very warm so even if its horrible outside I wouldn't wear to many layers.

Sorry for the delay in answering. Many of the flying birds, butterflies etc are free to fly around. Some of the bigger species are in cages/tanks.
