Some enclosures empty, not sign posted, not even a sign on the entrance or car park. No where to park and that's midweek. Shame as it just lacks organisation and structure, OK for the groupon price, but only for very small children, older children can look round in a few minutes

We've been twice now to do the zoo keeper experience and my kids would happily go again. It's very friendly and informative, and the kids get to handle about 5 animals, prepare food and fly some type of hawk or owl. It's a bit tucked out of the way - look out for the garden centre - but the cafe does food and you can get a coffee to take out to the wildlife centre. It's a very relaxed and interesting morning and I'd definitely recommend it.

Located behind a garden centre. Toilets, cafe, small children's park are located near the wildlife centre. There is also crazy golf and miniature train ride run by the garden centre for a small charge. Lots of animals to see, you can go in and out all day, most are rescued. You can see them training the raptors most days. Small gift shop.
