The butterflies here are really big and beautiful which is lovely but that really is the only highlight. The aviary was really very small and what I was hoping would look like a lush, rainforest-esque greenhouse, actually turned out to be a really sparse, dry, drab looking room in desperate need of some TLC.
Reptile house was pretty much empty, 'Animal Avenue' seemed to have a couple of guinea pigs and a couple of rabbits, "play" area was completely non-existent (have they removed all of the children's activity equipment but not yet removed the sign??), Nostalgia Museum was about one of the creepiest things I've ever encountered. The gardens were really well thought-out and pretty, however the whole place just didn't flow very well. You'd often wander down paths and things and then get to a dead end and have to turn back the way you came to get out. It's also as far away from buggy friendly as you can get. I had my all terrain buggy with me, I dread to think what it would have been like with a stroller. Paths are really narrow so it's an incredibly tight squeeze for a single buggy, if you have a double don't bother!
Just generally this is a fantastic premise that has been executed terribly. The whole place is so neglected and run down, signs fading and rusting, cages seen better days, crazy golf looked like it had been built 50 years ago and not touched since. Did the entire thing in 40 minutes and also not somewhere you want to go on a hot summers day as most of it is in a greenhouse.
Give it a miss.
