With a bend toward conservation, Welsh Mountain Zoo houses many endangered species, such as snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, and Andean condors. A wide range of other mammals, birds, and reptiles also make their home in the park. Explore the Media Centre, which is filled with educational games for children, and watch some of the featured animal shows that are available throughout the day. While the animals live with ample space (15 hectares or 37 acres), the design of the park makes it easy for you to get up close. Its hilltop location makes the surrounding environment part of the experience. Because of the hilly terrain, wheelchair accessibility is limited.

Welsh Mountain Zoo Reviews
Great day out. Lots of easy access routes around the zoo but still had a couple of issues with the pushchair (more of an issue with the wheels than the zoo). Park areas were great for older children. Would definitely recommend.
Not the cheapest zoo to get in but in my view worth the admission price. Try to catch the talks from the keepers as they are very interesting and highlight the keepers knowledge of the animals. Good selection of animals and a well laid out zoo, good walking shoes are a must as it is definitely a 'mountain' zoo. Good for children and adults alike. Would recommend a visit.
