Pleasant few hours


Danielle S,
This is a lovely place to take the kids for a couple of hours. I don't think I would have made this a whole day trip. We took a picnic although there are food facilities available. There are plenty of animals to see.

Lovely place to spend a few hours


Rachel S,
Myself and my other half visited and had a lovely few hours wandering around, the animals all look very happy and well kept...there are good information boards around telling you about the animals. I would recommend feeding the parakeets which only cost an additional £1 overall a nice morning was had

Should be a Good place but in our experience was very disappointing.


Alyson M, Alicante, Spain
My grandchildren came on holiday from Oz, so we decided Kirkley Hall word be a fab venue to visit. We saw many animals but alas the children we so disappointed that they could have no interaction with any animal ever down to rabbits. The kids were so upset they asked to go home. There were no staff around anywhere other than when we went to see the parrots to which we had to pay extra. To try and cheer the kids up we decided to go to the activity centre but we’re told it was closed. When we walked over there were persons on the climbing wall & when they finished the went on the zip wire. All we got was Why them and not us. Could have been a good day but it was not to be....then it rained. Not a good start to their holiday in the U.K. not like at home they said.

pleasant afternoon


Lesley A, northumberland
A few years since we last visited Kirkley zoo, but paid a visit today and we really enjoyed our walk around the zoo Had lunch at the orangery tea rooms as the cedar café was closed - staff were very friendly but obviously kept very busy as there was only 1 girl serving most of the time and another girl filling the food orders..but the wait time wasn't too bad (we've had a lot worse believe me) what i was quite shocked at was that the floors and tables were covered in food it was just disgusting !!! I felt sorry for the staff because as quick as they were tidying up after customers more were sitting down to eat and i was shocked at how one or two (not all) of the parents literally let their children run wild and do whatever they liked..i wonder if they treat their own homes in the same way ? reminded me of a 'chimps tea party' ...it was the same on the zoo walk itself...some ''lovely little cherubs'' had thrown their cardboard lunch boxes from the café in with the meerkats ? another child about 6 yrs old had his hands through the fence trying to get at the animals even though there were signs up in front of them warning not too touch as they can bite..but mummy just wandered away in a little world of her own ? worth a visit a nice aftenoon

Lovely way to spend a morning


anneloo, england
Wasn’t expecting much when I booked tickets for the zoo however what a pleasant surprise we got when we arrived. Well cared for animals, informative staff and clean well maintained animal areas. My young child was over joyed to see meerkats, monkeys, birds and fish and was totally enthralled with the wallabies where for a small donation you can feed them. Overall great value for money, and Id use the word zoo loosely, it was more animal park with a social conscience which made it all the better. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning there.
