From Our Editors

Ventura Wildlife's Zoological Gardens is a unique interactive zoo, located in Great Amwell. Nested within two acres of Hertfordshire countryside. Ventura Wildlife's Zoological Gardens is dedicated to providing adventure, education, and conservation. The Zoo is home to over 45 different species of exotic animals from around the world. Get a closer look at zebra, reindeer, kangaroo, lemurs, Madagascar’s largest carnivore the fossa, and the UK’s only Cuban hutia. Head to the NEW Critter Cove which is host to a world of tropical reptiles, amphibians and creepy crawlies. Guests can get even closer to the animals through our daily activities, including keeper talks, feeding displays, and animal encounter shows. The zoo is open all year round with the exception of Easter Sunday, Christmas Day & Boxing Day.

This was a lovely place and kids enjoyed the animals. You are allowed to go in as many times as you like on your ticket price. The "zoo" animals are within the grounds of the garden centre. It was done lovely and the enclosures were very clean tidy and well maintained. The animals were quite close so nice to be able to see them properly. Unfortunately it only takes about 35mins to see everything. They do do animal talks and little shows which enabled the kids to see creatures really close and even hold or touch them. The garden centre also has a little farm corner where you can feed and touch the animals and that is free of charge. A beautiful restaurant and lots of things to look at. Overall a lovely day which we split with a picnic at the car before going back in again.

It's very small , within 30 minutes you would have seen everything,, it's not a day out with the kids unless they enjoy walking around a garden centre too. Which is a lovely garden centre !!

Good value for money with a close look at some quite rare species. The handling experience and talk was enjoyed by both children and adults. Unfortunately as didn't have zoo programme of activities missed some of the experiences. Would go again

Lovely venue, with very friendly staff. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Attraction had great selection of animals that were well looked after, and was made better being next to a great garden centre and farm you could access at no extra charge

Tiny, only a few animals, took about ten minutes. Not worth paying for

A very nice day out - the zoo is in a garden centre (free parking) & there is also a mini steam train (£1 per person) and a free area with farm animals. Didn't give 5* only because the zoo was quite small (you can visit it in under 40 minutes) but there are lovely talks, meet the animals and you can feed lamas & alpacas, all this away from the London crowds!
