  • Nice visit today to a small zoo spoilt by the sad state of the leopard enclosures. They may meet animal welfare standards but they're still woefully small and one leopard was clearly distressed...  more »
  • Lovely day out at Linton zoo, one way system, loads of hand sanitisers, ticket entry time to avoid queues. Excellent day out.  more »

  • Very enjoyable if rather smaller than expected. It is a breeding zoo, and there are many animals not usually found in other zoos. Each pen has an interesting plaque to read about the animal inside. Keepers give interesting animal talks. Good place for small children and a family picnic. Small cafe/shop.
  • What a great place! Pleasant, compact, well kept park and a complete focus on the animals and the conservation programs. So much good information to make you think about the animals on our planet. Delightful staff. Would come again.
