For the ability to actually see the animals this place is better than Chester zoo as you are closer. It as many to choose from but enough for kids under 7. Big gorilla too. All round good day out.

What a fantastic trip with the family. We really enjoyed the sea lion show, excellent. All the animals were amazing to see up so close. Lunch in the cafe was ok but could do with more stock on salads and Fruit.
