We made the mistake of visiting yesterday after reading tons of bad reviews beforehand thinking, how bad can it be? Our little one will love seeing the animals. We are deeply saddened over the condition of this establishment. The decor is old, rotten and dirty....More

Where do I start? 1. The price at £9.00 per adult is a rip off for such a limited attraction! 2. The attraction is pretty sparse in interest (a) The butterfly house is a rundown lean-to with a real air of neglect and very few...More

Visited during our holiday, the place does come across a little run down in places, the Gardens were lovely, and the kids enjoyed the little game of finding the hidden pictures to win a balloon. The Butterfly and bird enclosure was fun to walk through,...More
