    This was honestly one of the days days out ever!
    We took part in the meerkat experience and carnivore combo experience.
    Both encounters where very good! Such an incredible experience too see.
    The zoo itself is a day out! There’s so much to do and see and on weekends/school holidays there a timetable for animal feeding, sheep races and keeper time where you get to find out about all the animals.
    The dinosaurs where really good too. The noises and movements made the experience much more enjoyable!
    If you’re debating it go. You won’t regret it.
    It’s a 2 hour drive for us to get there and 2 back but it was worth the journey.
    Can wait to go again and do other encounters!

    This was a lovely park located very near the town centre. The Dingle is a smaller garden portioned off from the larger park which was very good. Attractive flour displays, water features too be seen within this garden area. We visited on a warm sunny afternoon, it was great seeing a lot of people of varying ages taking advantage of the park and its facilities on a weekday. Highly Recommended.

    Have visited a couple of times before but we took our newly acquired rescue dog with us. Very well sign posted areas were you can let your dog off the lead . Not a lot of places cater for this. Lovely walks various distances from a short walk up to a long walk depending how you and your doggie pal are feeling.

    We had our lunch in the court yard
    Quiet expensive for what we had but at least it was tasty. They serve a range of snacks and sandwiches etc we had a sausage roll each and a coffee . But you can take your own food if that's what you prefer.

    All in all well worth a visit especially if you are looking for dog friendly place.

    Amazing VIP experience. Normally feel sad when leaving a zoo this definitely wasn’t the case here I’ve never been to a zoo where the keepers interact so much with the animals. We had the VIP experience and went in with most of the animals to feed and interact with them..our tour guide Kirsten was lovely she knew so much about the animals and their individual personalities and made us feel so welcome. Also Chelsea who took us in with the marmosets was friendly and fun. All the staff where so friendly and we felt welcomed as soon as we walked through reception. Excellent job the staff do, you can tell how much they love the work they do and would recommend for anyone who loves animals and wants to be a bit more hands on. The enclosures were great too with everything every species needed, not a single animal performing abnormal behaviours..if I could give more than 5 stars I would! AMAZING!

    We had a very enjoyable day on 28th June 2022. The properties and the staff make it very interesting. Special mention to the candle maker and the lady in the squatters cottage who excelled in bringing the experience of the day to life.

    Was in the area August 2019 with my partner, his sister and her family we headed to the platform area which has benches and views across out to the sea, whilst my partners sister sat and read a book the rest of did the walk taking in some more lovely views. Pathways becomes narrow in places and at times there is quite a drop to one side. As long as you take care the walk is enjoyable.

    Set in delightful countryside, next to a church, this ancient dwelling retains a strong sense of place. The buildings are fascinating and the small garden very pretty.

    Visited Ludlow and was a little dubious about going round the castle from reviews I had read. But so glad I did what a gem, yes it’s a shell but it has lots to see. Towers to go up and do if you are able, the steps are very narrow and only a couple of the towers have handrails. But take you time getting up and down the views are more then worth it. We spend a good hour or more in there lots of little rooms to look at. They are well worth taking your time over and viewing them. I thought it more then worth the £8 entrance and 50p for a small guidebook that gives you plenty of information about the rooms. It is a lovely castle and has far more to see then I thought.

    A great, cheap, way to move from the shopping area to the riverside. Costs £2 for adults and kids (I think aged 6 or lower) are free. Also good example of history.

    We are moving to the Telford area and went to the town centre and town park for a recce. Wow! The park is fantastic! No wonder it has won awards. There is so much to do and see for all ages....if this is what our council tax helps pay for then we are getting a bargain. There is too much to describe - I would just advise you go there and have a wander around. If you have children / grandchildren the play areas are amazing. If you don't the walks round the lakes or the Chelsea garden will delight you. And all of this right next to the newly developed areas with great restaurants (we went to Wagamama's - but that is another review!) People often look down their nose at Telford - well, that's their loss!

    Absolutely fabulous experience....we are still talking about it hours after the event. We met Sammy a falcon and also on the hawk walk Maya kept us very amused. The owls were also a treat, remarkable birds. Mark has fantastic knowledge and provides not only deep knowledge of the birds and behaviours but also local history. Highly recommended.

    We booked 8pm service with premium tickets last December. It's unfair to say there's nothing to do before boarding - there's a miniature railway run by station staff, and I must say their layout is larger, more thought off in comparison to Hornby Margate museum layouts (!) we've seen. My 4-year old boy is a train enthusiast so he was excited right from the start. Just before we boarded we heard there was a performance at the tent, it was indeed overcrowded but the cafe next door was cosy and well-heated, I had a vanilla latte to warm up.
    I know no ways how to remove mud from crowded spaces, and mud is everywhere - on music festivals, car boot sales, open-air antique markets. Does just mud really destroy all moments of joy and fun?
    Our seats were in a clean old carriage and we all received a set of 4x Polar Express mugs to take home, we alsо rеceived a silver bell from Santa.
    My son was gripped the moment he boarded the train and never stopped smiling. The hot chocolate was warm. Be realistic, they can't make drinks piping hot for safety reasons, it's a moving vehicle full of babies and toddlers after all! The chefs/dancers were young and cheerful, the conductor was polite and didn't rush. Santa was a young actor too, so older kids might question credibility but we have to respect the time the rides are going on - pandemic, and older actors might simply not want to take the risk. I have no opinion about the North Pole - my boy was excited, at some point train needs to stop and go back and realistically you could go into the shop BEFORE departing - it's just behind the corner.
    Prices hike up due to coronavirus social distancing and PE franchise cost. I paid £94 for two of us, the price is comparable to a theatric performance cost.
