    Absolutely fantastic zoo. Very clean, I didn't see an ounce of litter. Enclosures are huge and very similar to what the animals habitats would be like. We were there from opening until closing and still didn't see everything. I will definitely be back!

    Spent a lovely week day here. It was especially quiet being a school day, which I picked intentionally. Lovely and clean and staff available if needed start to finish. All animals looked happy and content. Lots have babies this time of year which was lively to see.

    WOW!!! we have not been here since our kids were young, about 15 years. It did not disappoint. The animals and enclosures were all in excellent condition, with more enclosures being built for future use. The grounds were all well-maintained and clean. The staff were all friendly and well presented. The lovely weather made the visit more enjoyable, a nice bonus. Another great day out at a zoo. We will be visiting more often from now on. It's a great day out for both kids and adults.

    Possibly the best zoo to visit in UK. There is a lot to see, so early morning visit is a must as the size is impressive. Very beautiful land with a lot of greenery so it's great to enjoy even in hot and sunny day. Huge selection of animals to see which are well looked after. Well stocked gift shop. Enough places to eat and drink. Welcoming staff.

    Good zoo with lots to do! There is a varied amount of different animals, some I've never even heard of! Places to sit, suitable for pushchairs, lots of food options. I also appreciate how environmentally conscious they're, using fully recyclable and recycled packaging, as well as encouraging environmentally sustainable choices personally. Don't worry, the paper straws last ages in your drink!
