The price to get in is daylight robbery. On Saturday, two adults, two pensioners and two young children. £82 .50. Inside, where had all the animals gone. Restaurant low on staff with long queues. Waste of time and money going to Marsh Farm.

I recently visited Marsh Farm with my partner but was turned down as we do not have children. I understand the need to protect children and support this. However, removing access to adults without children is not a suitable solution. Have you thought about the...More

We visited with our grandchildren who were fascinated both by the animals and play areas. The inddor restaurant was rather too loud!

Great variety of things for children to do. The range of animals is good as is the ability to pet a fair amount. Very respectable hand washing areas too for after petting animals. The playparks were fab too and the additional activities (tractor ride and...More
