Great experience, perfect day out for any family. The only thing that could be improved are maps and directions. One can easily get lost.

Well worth buying tickets online. Free parking just a stone throw from zoo. Took stroller for 2year old as a big zoo just incase of tired legs!!. Worth taking pack up as food over priced. Shame some animals were huddled up as cold. Maybe spring would be better time to visit but still was enjoyable for all ages.would definitely go again

We had a wonderful time with our two toddler grandchildren .It was a sparkling Autumn day and the animals welcomed us . The tigers enjoyed a joint , the lions roared , the giraffes bent their long necks into our faces and the meerkats were super cute and on the lookout . Elephants watched us from afar and the hunting dogs answered our call . Can’t thankyou enough Whipsnade ... memories to treasure forever .
