It was a lovely day for the zoo. However it’s a bit hard to go around as the signs and map is t 100%. However it is a lovely activity with kids and family. Got to see Pandas, Koalas and penguins. Animals I have never seen before. Loads of food places and ice cream spots making it A family friendly place

One of the best zoos I have been in the UK, truly enjoyed my time and the different animals that you could see. The zoo is really into conservation and it was wonderful reading their efforts and were the animals had come from etc. Point to note there is a incline as the zoo is on a hill.

The park is kind of small, very slopey ways its not so friendly with people that have knee problems. Sometimes directions are not clear. But overall the park is clean they have great variety. The time we went the zoo had the dinosaurs animatronics which was a huge plus. The staff there are really friendly as well.
