We enjoyed our day out today however would have been disappointed if we weren’t annual pass holders and many animals weren’t out or easily seen. I know this can’t be avoided but can imagine if paid full price you’d have been gutted!

With good weather it is a lovely place to go for a walk or with children. Could have more places to sit ansmd watch the animals but still very pleasant.
