Had an awesome day here with loads to learn and take in especially from the amazing keepers and the talks. No question is too much for these guys and they truly care about the animals.

The zoo is good, it needs a little TLC and feels dated compared to their partner Paignton zoo which is a shame, the animals seem well looked after which is always the priority and great too see, just a little update in order

Firstly this is not a large zoo, and apart from the Lions, there are no big ticket animals. But that just does not matter. My girls loved it here. The zoo has a wonderful, and diverse selection of animals - all looking happy and healthy....More

Thank you for your feedback, we do apologise about the parking, however, the carpark is council owned so unfortunately out of our control. The carpark is free in the winter months so hopefully you will be able to visit us again and take advantage of...More
