Post-apocalyptic vibes
ต.ค. ค.ศ. 2021 • ครอบครัว
The enclosures were small and badly-kept. Weeds, dirty water, peeling paint. The animals looked bored and sad. There was a loose peacock with no tail feathers. Penguins stood on sand and sea lions reclined on concrete. The layout was a little confusing. It felt incomplete, or neglected. Some areas were off-limits due to COVID (presumably). The little red "train" that took guests part-way round the park was a nice novelty – though it was a short ride, the cars needed more leg room, and weirdly it rode on the same path as the pedestrians. My five-year-old enjoyed her day there (mainly thanks to the train) but she too felt sorry for the animals and commented on the inadequate conditions. I think the zoo might benefit from reducing the number of different animal species and then giving more care and attention to the ones which remain.

Don't bother!

What a Sh#t hole!

Such a depressing place to visit, miserable faced staff who would rather talk about their weekends instead of helping customers.

Definitely lacking leadership or customer service skills.

The zoo itself looks dirty and way too small for the monkeys and birds (pretty much all they have).

The prices are extortionate for what it is the only plus side was the train driver.

I would not return here and I'm surprised all the poor animals don't die within the year.

Sort yourselves out you poor excuse for a zoo

Awful. Absolutely awful
ต.ค. ค.ศ. 2021 • คู่รัก
I've been to many zoos in my time, all which have been nice experiences, but this one was different. I felt so bad for the animals, the fact I was paying towards this god awful zoo. They're kept in enclosures that are far to small for them. The enclosures themselves were unkempt and dirty and the water was absolutely filthy. Thick with mud and algae. I felt so miserable walking around and seeing the animals and the whole environment had a very sad mood to it. The amount of people I overheard discussing how small the animals spaces are, or how skinny the tigers look, and just how the entire vibe of the zoo was off. Even the staff looked miserable to be there. None of them were smiling and interacting with customers and animals, and there was a few just stood there chatting to friends on their mobiles?

I was excited to see the castle, as I go around the UK visiting 100s of different castles every weekend, but unfortunately this one was rubbish. It was all barricaded off so you couldn't go inside and see the history of it, apart from one little area which was the keep

I was keen to leave after that and to add to the experience, as I was walking past the owls, there were 4 youths stood there smoking weed. I mean, how low do you have to be to be stood smoking weed around kids and families?

It just seemed a very tired, dirty, run down zoo, with no enthusiasm to care for the animals or the customers

Feed a Big Cat Experience
ก.ย. ค.ศ. 2021 • คู่รัก
We went to the zoo after I bought the Feed a Big Cat Experience as a Christmas Present for my partner in 2019 but weren’t able to go sooner due to the pandemic. Fortunately, we were able to extend the dates on our experience and it was definitely worth the wait.

The zoo is quite run down in places with some of the main enclosures in desperate need of some renovations and TLC. The entrance to the zoo is also unsightly and somewhat off putting. But this didn’t ruin our experience. Some of the newer enclosures are much better and if some money could be invested into the older enclosures, it would be a really great attraction.

The zoo is quite steep and hilly in places which some may find difficult. The food is also overpriced but not unpleasant. The castle is a great addition with well maintained gardens for a pleasant walk and exploring around the castle.

The zoo was fairly quiet throughout most of our visit which meant that we had no issue being able to see all of the animals, which we have found to be the case at some of the bigger and busier zoos in the country.

The lemur, wallaby and penguin walk throughs were great features and allowed for some amazing photo opportunities. The bird house was good too and you can buy pots of nectar for £1.50 before you go in - but perhaps give this a miss if you’re scared of birds or don’t want them landing on you.

The Feed a Big Cat Experience was absolutely incredible and I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking about getting this as a gift for someone or if you want to do it yourself. We were lucky to have the choice between Tigers, Lions or Snow Leopards so we went for the Tigers (choice isn’t guaranteed through depending on the welfare of the animals on the day of your visit). The keeper was knowledgeable, informative, friendly and welcoming and was happy to answer any of our questions and take pictures of us whilst we fed the Tigers.

Overall, we had a lovely visit and would probably visit again although it was the experience that made the day for us. The zoo needs to invest some money into its enclosures for it to be a better attraction, although this may be difficult following the pandemic.

Depressing
ก.ย. ค.ศ. 2021
The majority of the zoo is in desperate need of renovations. The car-park entrance set the whole tone for the visit and lets say it wasn't good. The majority of the animal enclosures were outdated, run-down, and lacking in space and enrichment for the animals to the point the animals looked depressed and lackluster. Some of the old re-used enclosures were little more than concrete pits with not a blade of grass to be seen.

The food was incredibly overpriced (£3 for a cheese sandwich which consisted of one piece of cheese slapped between two pieces of buttered bread and that's all, and £8 for a chicken goujons and chips meal which was more snack sized than meal sized).

The number of wheelie bins was honestly baffling. I can understand having an increased number of bins in the height of summer because, lets be honest, visitors are messy and lack the brain cells to hold onto their rubbish until they find a bin, but outside of peak time do there really need to be wheelie bins placed literally (and I wish I were exaggerating) every 10 feet?

As for some of the staff, I've seen more cheer in a graveyard, and what type of employee thinks it's acceptable to try and bum a lighter for their cigarette off a visitor?

It wasn't all doom and gloom though. My two year-old niece thoroughly enjoyed the train and once you got to the top of the zoo where the newer or more recently renovated enclosures were, like the reptile house and penguins, it was a vast improvement and was closer to what I had been expecting from an establishment with such a good reputation. The lemur walk and lorikeet aviary were also bright spots.

Sadly though the overall experience left us feeling depressed at the overall conditions the animals were living in and we're unlikely to return unless major refurbishment is carried out (which is difficult to imagine given it's a non-profit and Covid has hit the zoo and safari sector particularly hard).

Brilliant day out. Wear comfortable shoes
ก.ย. ค.ศ. 2021 • คู่รัก
We had a brilliant day out. We fed the giraffes with Adam who was brilliant, then spent the day walking around and seeing the rest of the animals, including having my head pooed on by birds while they ate out of the cup which was weirdly fun. great day out but our feet are killing us now and I know our legs will be hurting tomorrow lol. my only suggestion would be to make the maps easier to understand.

Zoo Keeper for a Day
ก.ย. ค.ศ. 2021 • คู่รัก
My husband and I booked the zoo keeper experience and it was even better than we could have imagined. The day, from start to finish, was INCREDIBLE! We were treated to meeting the chimps, orangutans, lemurs, birds of prey, snow leopards, penguins, giraffes and tapirs. We got to give the chimps a drink, fly a couple of the birds, feed the penguins and giraffes and snuggle the tapir. In addition to this, we got to make treat boxes for the tigers. The keepers were so knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. The best experience we could have wished for. Would highly recommend this

Dated zoo that could be brilliant!!!
ก.ย. ค.ศ. 2021 • คู่รัก
This zoo has so much potential to be brilliant. They need to apply for some sort of funding from the government or Lottery to improve the zoo and bring it to 2021 standards. The animals need enrichment because they looked bored and fed up. The restaurant served nice hot food, not a lot of choice but it was fine for us. For people who have mobility issues please hire a mobility scooter before arriving at the zoo. It's all up hill and very steep. They do have a land train that runs every 20 minutes which takes you up and down the zoo and pushchairs or wheelchairs can be stored at the back. The chair lift usually isn't running as it's from the 60's but with a new updated lift would be so popular. Kids could play on the fair ground and run around the grounds of the castle. At the moment I wouldn't recommend visiting with the zoo the way it is. But it could be brilliant.
