  • This is a great little place to visit! A range of animals to look at. Feeding times for seals and meerkats to watch which is really fun to watch! There's a little cafe which is nice there is about a 20/30 minute wait for hot food during very busy times however food was nice and cheap. Also a little gift shop at the end which had some lovely gifts... Overall brilliant day!
  • Wonderful conservation work and education. It was so peaceful in September with no kids about, practically nobody else there until feeding time. Good cafe and gift shop too. Could watch the seals for hours.
