I came here a few times as a child, and have just enjoyed our second visit here with my own family. We arrived intentionally early, knowing the traffic/ticket management isn't great, and there was already quite a stack of cars built up, but it seemed...More

Was debating whether to visit this zoo or London zoo and have no regrets. San Diego Zoo is big but you need to join safari to get closer to the animals. The enclosures in this zoo didn't feel like cages at all. Like for the...More

Such a brilliant day! Booked online and no bother getting in. Wasn’t over-busy on a bank holiday. Nice big open enclosures. Reasonably priced food and gifts. Lots of seating and picnic areas. Kids loved it!

I’m not a huge fan of zoos or wildlife parks, but this place is delightful. The grounds are extensive and well planted, and the animal enclosures are adequate and well maintained. Although I live only about a 90 min drive away, this was my first...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the place. The staff were really great. I needed to park closer to the park as my mum can't walk too far. I was able to get a wheelchair for her. We spent 4 hours going from start to finish. Plenty of space...More

Second time visiting here and it just gets better. It’s great visiting a wildlife park which you are able to take your dog. It’s great value too. We spent about 5 hours wandering round and we don’t even have children. The staff are constantly making...More

I usually come here a few times a year. While it is a little pricey to get in there is an excellent selection of animals to see, great picnic area and ice cream venders throughout. The restaurant wasn't great but apart from that it is...More

Lots of space so your not surrounded by lots of people all the time. Easy to have a picnic anywhere. The selection of animals is plentiful. You can spend the day entirely at your own pace. A guaranteed enjoyable day out!

The gorgeous village of Burford is very close. Lots of boutiques, coffee shops & antiques. Worth checking to see what's available there when you visit.
