Family day out. Very concerned regarding size of cages. Animals pacing. VERY UNKEPT, scruffy, no resources in cages for animals. Keepers were friendly and helpful but concerned for animals and their environment

Although closed for visitors due to Covid we took part on a one to one zoom call yesterday. It was great the children really enjoyed watching the lemurs and learning all about them. My normally shy granddaughter was able to ask many questions as we were the only ones on the call.

We gifted our kids a Junior Zookeeper experience and were super impressed! Our guide, Ben, did a brilliant job at engaging and inspiring our 6 and 8 year olds who came away with a new sense of love and respect for the animal world! Their favourite part was definitely feeding the meerkats but they even loved cleaning up the wallaby poo! A unique, hands-on and extremely personalised experience that you wouldn't get anywhere else. Ben was a real ambassador for Hemsley and I couldn't recommend a visit and an experience at this lovely little caring "zoo" more. Thank you and well done!

We visited the Hemsley conservation centre to take part of the meerkat experience and was extremely impressed! The zoo has set out a COVID safe one way system to allow you the view all of the animals without bumping into anyone. Our meerkat experience was hosted by Becca who was great! She knew all of the answers to any questions we had and was able to tell us some amazing facts about meerkats in general and the specific ones we were able to feed at Hemsley. I would highly recommend, great for families and anyone who loves animals!!!

A really lovely afternoon visiting the centre, such a great cause and was fantastic to see such a variety of animals so well cared for. Definitely worth a visit whilst supporting a fantastic cause. Great cafe and selection of food as well!
