There's all the animals you want to see here...well cared for, and lots of them....grounds are well set out so you get a proper walk in the fresh air after going in to see some of the....smellier animals...but my kids were continually wowed by Big cats, Rhinos, cute and hilarious Monkeys, Penguins, Giraffes, comparing Meercats, and then there's the reptiles n spiders n that kind of thing.
There's webcams too so get a relative to get a pic of you watching the penguins feed time...then you can always keep checking back on your fave penguin after you've visited....
Prices are something around the £14 for adults and £10 I think for kids over 3....under 3 is free...quite reasonable I guess for this kind of thing as you know the money goes towards upkeep of animals and grounds.....
The adventure playground is great - there's stuff for very young kids and higher scarier slides and climbing bits to challenge your older monkeys....all within sight of a half decent, clean cafe/restaurant (picnic facilities outside too), where staff were friendly and helpful.
Hope you get a Nice sunny day to explore this park and these animals...my kids and husband had a ball...and...I got a giant cuddly bear from the shop. Might take our own coffee next time tho...
