Good value attraction on the coast, go along and see the penguins being fed at lunchtime! Learn about the impact man has on sea life. 
Such a lovely place, the animals are wonderful. 
Excellent value for money, the best Zoo we have ever visited. Everything is so clean and well maintained; all animals look very happy and content.
