Peacocks and Lorikeets


Amandajpile, Ellington, United Kingdom
This was a cheap couple of hrs out for 2 mums with 4 kids between them to entertain. Our little ones are aged 5-3. We booked through NE offers and got a family pass for £10 which included 2 adult entry’s and 3 kids... we paid for one... so @ £14 for 6ppl we couldn’t complain. We paid £1 each to feed the lorikeets which was by far the loveliest part of our day. They have a nice little picnic area here with a park and viewing of the monkeys and lemurs while you eat. There are peacocks strutting around that are a highlight with the kids. They also have a little mud kitchen for the kids to play with which was a nice touch. There isn’t a lot to see but we really enjoyed feeding the birds. When we visited last year there was lots more hands on petting available in the barn which the kids missed. Also we were there for 3hrs and neither the wallaby or lemur walkthrough we’re open. All in all though a happy couple of hrs for small children 👍

Nice few hours day out


natalies671, Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom
We bought the family ticket through facebook for £10. Never been or heard of this place before. Lots of nice animals to walk around and see. We listened to the animal talks and paid £1 each to feed the lorikeets. My youngest daughter was terrified but oldest loved it. Plenty of picnic tables around to bring your own food but they do have somewhere to eat. Also a vending machine. Toilets were clean as were hand washing facilities. On the way out we stopped at the wooden play-park and my daughters played there for a while. Was definitely worth the £10 we paid.

Ok day out


britton10, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We visited Kirky Hall zoological gardens during February half term. We got a voucher for £10 for family so it was a bargain day out! The zoological gardens were much smaller than I was expecting but they do have a good range of animals. As it was half term it was extremely busy but more so with toddlers and buggies so it was difficult moving around at times and so people aren’t very polite when it comes to buggies! After 1 hour half we felt we had seen everything and walked around several times. The layout isn’t great and no real direction. It was a cheap day out but not somewhere I’d be raring to return too.
