The aviary houses include a Humboldt penguin enclosure and the Tropical House, containing lush vegetation, colorful birds, and free-roaming sloths.

As you make your way around the premises, take time to admire the many exotic plantings in the various gardens.

  • We go here every year without fail. It has something for everyone. The play area is fantastic and they also have a train. The animals are well cared for. It is a great place for a family day out. The restaurant serves hot meals and is reasonably priced. It also has many spots for a picnic. If you haven't been please visit. The ticket prices are so cheap compared to other safari parks and zoos

Their is a train that goes around the perimeter of the main animal park for £1 each with wheel chair accessible carriages and a brilliant adventure play area to suit all ages. We had a Brilliant day out and for a reasonable price.
