Our family came away feeling really sad for the animals in this run down establishment. All the animals looked sad, there was very poor facilities for them with a lack of fresh water, the beautiful owls had no shelter from the elements. Dead chicks floating...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

We were looking for something to do on a wet day, and despite being relatively "local" (living 15 miles away) had never heard of this place until my daughter found it on the internet. We had a great 3 hours there. Yes, the museum is...More

Horrid place. Most enclosures were empty and those with animals in were run down and dirty. The donkey was shivering and was jumpy. Disgusting conditions. Smelt bad. Gardens were half dead and the ponds looked filthy. £9.50 per adult and I was almost reduced to...More
