Reasons for trip

We spent about 6 hours here on a chilly November day with our grandsons (aged 2 and 8) which I think shows that there is plenty to do with children, mainly outside but with several things to do indoors as well. The animals in the zoo seem well cared for and range from farm animals to tigers so something for everyone, some of them can be fed with bags of special food purchased for £1 near the entrance. There is also a free tractor trailer which gives round the zoo every half hour.

As well as the animals there is an extensive play area with a good variety of slides, climbing frames etc with several themed items such as pirates or vehicles. There was plenty for both the 2 and the 8 year old. Indoors there is large safe climbing/play area with a conveniently situated coffee bar for the adults to sit at whilst they can watch the children play. In addition to these areas, and closer to the zoo area, there is a bouncy castle, a helter skelter and a mini carousel, all again included in the admission price.

Very popular with our 2 year old grandson was the Thomas train ride (£1 each) which went round and between the dinosaurs distributed among the trees (these can also be seen on the woodland walk).

The National Speedway Museum is also on the site also crazy golf and in the summer a children’s splash area, we did not visit these.

All in all we thought it was a good day out, initially we had thought it expensive but there was so much there that we decided it was value for money.
