I live in London and take my two-year-old to this zoo often. This is a great place for toddlers. The size and scale are just right - the London Zoo is far too big and overwhelming for littler ones. This has the right mix of...More

We went for Hedgehog Day, my Grandchildren had a lovely time, most popular was the sand,water, digger and the fire engine. and of course the animals. A great day out and it was suitable and enjoyable for 4, 9, and 12 year old.

It is not easy to reach with public transport although not far from centre. The zoo itself is very small with maybe 50 - 60 different animals. It is clean, and washing facilities are all over. There is an entrance fee, which is not cheap...More

Not the biggest children's farm I've ever been to, but plenty to see. The play equipment for the kids was first class. The entrance fee was worth that alone! My little boy spent hours on the tractor and fire engine, and also found the monkeys...More

Very pleased you and your toddler enjoyed the zoo. Although the adventure playground is great fun once energy is expended even little children enjoy the animals and birds and who knows what they remember from this experience. My elder son was definitely influenced by a...More

We spent a rain-sodden afternoon here and enjoyed ourselves immensely despite the weather. As some other reviewers have pointed out the word "Zoo" is slighly misleading but only due to its bigger rival at ZSL. This would be best described as a community farm or...More

Thanks for your review. The zoo does attract younger children 4 to 10 year olds and therefore we endeavour to cater for them. The animals are small and child appealing, the signs are child specific in the hope even the youngest visitor can take home...More

I didn’t see anything like that when I was there, there is a reception for both the dog and cat area so they may have somewhere secure there to store things for you.

Yes, there is. Just follow the signs towards Zoo and you will be able to park by the gate. GBP2.70 for three hours.
