  • It took us 540 mins to go round this, but clearly if you watch the parrot show it will take longer. Ok I suppose if your children are very young.

  • Hello. Whoever you are, if you have ever cared about an animal, please take a few minutes to read this. Thank you. Selwo Marina was horrifying. I am begging you not to support this place. I am 16...

  • This was so much better than I expected. It seemed like only a small place from the outside, but it had so many things to offer. Unfortunately the prices are cheaper on the website, and having tried the website, it didn't work. The prices can vary depending on the day too. But the penguins were probably the best part. There are also two cages you can go into, gilled with monkeys, birds and other animals. That was incredible. The dolphins were also impressive, but I had to go after a few minutes.
  • Cute but small zoo, definitely great for kids with a delightful dolphin show that should not be missed. If possible buy the tickets online as they are cheaper. It is a lovely environment showcasing various animals from around the world of which a few are within an aviary which can be walked through allowing you to get close with a few birds and monkeys. Other animals are housed within clean enclosures allowing everyone to see them easily. There are a few educational talks introducing certain animals throughout the day along with the option to take a picture with a sea lion. Overall however, the dolphin show is what made the price worth it, so I definitely recommend not missing it. Additionally try to avoid the front 4 rows of seats as they are below water level which impedes your view of the performance.
