A bit disappointed with this trip. We 'bigged' it up for the kids expecting a full afternoon of fun. In reality you can see everything there is to see in half an hour or so. Wouldn't rush back.

I visited Amazonia after finding a deal on Wowcher that offered two adult tickets for £6, although the entry at normal price is relatively reasonable I believe. The exhibits are all well kept, and the animals all seem very content and at ease. There is...More

Took my children here and they enjoyed getting close to some of the animals. Price was ok but it really doesn't take long to go round the whole thing.

it's indoors but will only take 2 hours at most unless you walk like a sloth ;) so allow for something else in your day. food on site is a bit grim too.
