Had a fantastic day here, I loved the butterfly house and also those cheeky parrots!! This is a great family day with lots to see and do, you can get really really close to the animals and even hold some. Hygiene is also a priority so there are lots of places to wash hands and sanitise. Definitely check this place... More

The lady on the entrance was very friendly. Entry for one adult, one child and a senior citizen was £30, I thought this seemed a bit steep but was pleasantly surprised with how much there was to see. Lots of different animals, a butterfly house with many different species of butterflies and lizards, 2 crocodiles and a pond with fish... More

Over all a great day was had by all, the cafe food was good too. The shows are informative. The butterfly house was colourful (and hot!) and the meerkats and porcupines were cute! There are various little interactive things to do along the paths too. I'm sure we would all like to hold the guinea pigs etc and if that... More

Loved this tourist attraction with my girlfriend and is just a nice venue to visit and support a local attraction. Great for families and kids and lots to see. Good day out and well worth a visit with free parking.

The postcode for website was incorrect and led me into a housing estate. However the animals were very interesting, my 8 Month old niece sure liked them. The tropical Butterfly House part was good but very warm and cramped! Not enough isle space to walk past people, especially with prams. Overall a good experience! I wouldn't go again but worth...

I absolutely loved it here and will definitely visit again. The weather did make it as well. I was overwhelmed with the butterflies, absolutely beautiful. The park is just enough and I thought the price was reasonable too. My grandchildren loved it too. The young lady that greeted me in the gift shop definitely needs a customer service award, extremely... More
