A little zoo where the animals appear to be well looked after and cared for. The staff are really enthusiastic and welcoming. A nice way to spend an hour or two if you are visiting Ribby Hall

We visited on a scorching Bank Holiday weekend and our kids had the Marmoset experience. It was amazing to get really up close to the animals and the kids had Marmosets climbing all over them.
