First off all I think this place is hampered by being in a theme park. But it is also expensive (when bought separate from a park ticket) and isn't that big (despite being the biggest in the country). Small selection of snakes (albeit big ones),...More

It’s an interesting area. The staff are knowledgeable and for a pound per person you get a handling experience of three animals/reptiles of the keepers choosing. The free talks are informative and butterflies fly around the enclosure. Only takes about half an hour to go...More

Kids loved it as the fish feeder gave out extra for free. Very humid inside. Every time I’ve been it’s bees the exact same. Never changes.

Firstly, this attraction is very small. We were there less than an hour. We got a buy one get one free deal so was £6.20 but I wouldn’t have paid £12.40 for this attraction. Simply not enough there to justify that amount of money. Under...More
