Much bigger than you would imagine when looking at the front of the building. Really great for kids, with helpful staff who were happy to explain every detail of the day to day operation. Very resonable entry fee.

Plenty to see. Enjoyed watching the hedgehogs, foxes, ravens, red kites, herons and ducks!! Fascinating for children but also plenty of information for adults too. The room with skeletons of wild animals was interesting too. Staff friendly and informative.

They have a shop and cafe and various animals as well as the hedgehogs, which you can see being fed. The staff are helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable. We liked the polecats and the birds of prey. But the hedgehogs were sweet.

I would suggest that it would be about 2 hours, although if they are engaged, then maybe longer There are feeding times so that might extend the visit However, it is a small centre, rather than being zoo sized
