Absolutely wonderful place. Definitely one of my favourite UK zoos to visit. Plenty of excellent photo opportunities thanks to the well thought-out design of the enclosures.

The cafe does good pizzas too

Darwa - ever been to Paignton or Longleat?

This place had tiny enclosures I thought and alot of the animals seemed very unhappy.

just to clarify - is £8 per adult! £6.50 for children. for family of four £29.

yes

Have been there many times before (mainly to visit the National Speedway Museum), and I agree with Darwa, nicely planned, and plenty of things for children to play and do, even a play back specifically for disabled children, it will be a great day out for all.

Personally, my favourite animal in the park is the Ocelot.

Can you go this week?

Sold out.

Yup. I did a post-graduate research project at Paignton on the capybara. I head down that way at least twice a year still, often stopping at Longleat en-route. I always try to take in Bristol zoo as well.

I can assure you that the animals at PWP aren't unhappy (well, by any definition that we, as humans, can register). The best way we can test this is to measure their cortisol levels (taken from blood/urine samples), and having the keepers/curator/other staff record any abnormal behaviours and immediately notify the zoo vet and a behavioural specialist. PWP subscribes to this practice.

I remember an old lecturer giving a rather colourful example of why we can't just take visual impressions into account: Look at the dolphins with their lovely smiles. They look happy, don't they? How about that one that's being gang-raped by the males, and has had her fin torn off in the struggle? She's still smiling - is she happy?

Sorry if that was a bit graphical, but I think it gets the point across very well.

In a nutshell, extensive studies are carried out on providing the best possible welfare for captive animals in zoos. Regretfully, there are places in the UK that don't always comply with the findings, but things are definitely improving. Look out for places that are approved by registered bodies such as BIAZA, EAZA, and WAZA (as PWP is) and you can rest assured that the animals are being well looked after

Here's a photo I took of a male African lion at PWP:

My impression was that they really spent money on building stairs so that visitors can see the animals from various vantage points above. This itself is worth visiting. Which zoo give you a more or less arial view from the top so that you can look right into enclosure!?I LOVE this zoo!
