This was special trip to give our three-year-old granddaughter her first experience of live animals in a virtually natural setting. The whole place is laid out wonderfully and is spotlessly clean. There are shows throughout the day, from birds to monkeys and much more. She...More

We first came here over 25 years ago, when it was still quite small, and were impressed with the idea of keeping birds and animals at liberty rather than in cages, and fascinated by its history. We were also impressed by the hawk flying display....More
