Really good activity for a day out with family or friends or as couples. Loads to see, the monkeys are brilliant and the child's quiz is also suitable for adults although I didn't get all the stamps. Would recommend!

Super talks from Lisa, one of the keepers, who obviously knows the individual animals & loves them. Warns guests of the noisy singing which interrupted her talk, but assured us it was attention seeking by the Lar Gibbons (who are actually very happy!). Nice clean...More

My 3yr old, 8yr old & 12yr old loved it. Was a beautiful day though ( which always helps ). Just take two umbrellas, problem solved. Has a nice play area also.
