Excellent value for money.

Well laid out venue with interesting content and informative and friendly staff. In our group of four there was literally something for everyone, all areas being enjoyed and each having a favourite differing from the others.

A great place. Very interesting and informative. Definitely worth the price of admission. Its a good idea to see the feedings and keeper talks. Strongly advise buying tickets online as the line can get long very quickly
