What You Say

You have a great Zoo! My daughters had a great time, the penguin experience was ace and we saw some
babies too! 
Steve, Cheshire
We were so pleasantly surprised by how lovely this zoo is. Well cared for animals and a great selection in appealing surroundings. Well done! 
Liz, Torquay
The animals are well looked after and the enclosures are large and interesting for them. Such a variety of animals and birds and they all seem happy. The cafĂ© and the toilets were of a good standard too.
