Written on: 25/06/2013 by tom_lauren (1 review written)

Hello, and welcome to our review. We visited Linton Zoo today, and let me tell you something, it was INSANE!!!!!!!! Basically we started off by parking the car up in the car park, and we were welcomed by a very welcoming woman. Then we made our way to the toilet, which was garnished with flowers and very clean. After relieving our bladders from the long drive, we made out way through to the entrance and found many exotic birds. Please let me tell you something ELSE!! Straight after the birds… Read Full Review

We had a fantastic day out at Linton Zoo, Great value for money with every member of the family young to old really enjoying themselves. In a great location easily accessibly from the M11 Linton Zoo has an amazing variety of Animals in very natural wild-like surroundings (I loved the Lions the best) Very helpful friendly staff happy to answer any questions. The kids really enjoyed asking about the Animals habitat and characteristics and I'm sure will return back to school next week passing on… Read Full Review

“Thank You Linton Zoo”

Written on: 28/06/2012 by GrannieE (1 review written)

Thank you for such a lovely day with our 3 grandchildren. The 3rd time we've visited. We don't normally visit zoo's but Linton is the exception. Having come away from other zoos feeling very sad and never wanting to repeat the experience, what a pleasure to come to Linton. The animals look so healthy and happy, and in such beautiful natural surroundings. The breeding programme throughout the zoo is very impressive. Wow! Home bred lions being sent to Uganda. Now, you can't better that, and… Read Full Review

We were greeted with a warm welcome (on a cold day) and got to meet some animal inhabitants before walking through the main doors. A large array of animals in good enclosures that have great visability. … Read Full Review

“Fantastic, family friendly day out. ”

Written on: 19/06/2012 by Kapow1976 (1 review written)

I recently visited Linton Zoo with my partner and our two young sons (aged 1 and 3). We had a fantastic day even though the weather wasn't great. Max, our 3 year old loved the 'hands-on' experience with the reptiles at the Animal Experiences. We spent ages trying to mimic the kangaroos and learning about the more exotic animals (I'd never met a tapir before). Our 1 year old was amazed by the parrots and spent the whole time screeching with delight. The animals living condition were absolutely… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience for all”

Written on: 18/05/2012

I took my son to Linton Zoo as a treat and in his words he had "the best day ever". We saw so many animals that we had never seen before and learnt so much. We also did the lemur experience and spent half an hour feeding the lemurs and learning all about them from our lovely helper, Patricia. We really couldn't have had a better time. My other children are now very jealous and we will all be returning very soon. Staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to give us a lovely time. I… Read Full Review

Well, we also love the zoo in our family. When I first had baibes a wise women told me to take my kids to the zoo because it is such a wonderful multi-sensory experience. You can see, smell, hear & touch plants & animals. It's a great learning place- for everyone from little baibes to really old baibes. That same wise lady usually gets our family a zoo pass, so we have been to several zoos in our travels. So, the only zoo that I know of that rivals San Diego (both in my opinion & in the polls) is the Columbus Zoo. It's a Jack Hanna Zoo with about 7000 animals. (San Diego has just over 4000.) You don't find more than that unless they are counting aquariums. Another great zoo is the National Zoo (DC). I also really like the Cleveland Zoo. It's actually amazing to me how much better the zoos are in the east. (More taxes, I guess.) However, I do think the Oakland Zoo & SF Zoo are pretty good now they they have make some improvements. Here are some other good zoos you should check out if you get the chance: Pittsburgh, Philly, Bronx, Phoenix, Cincinnati. (I also hear the Indy Zoo is good, never been there.) Another zoo that I want to go to is the one in Chicago (called by another name). There are also some great aquariums & zoo like places, like Sea World, that are amazing. Have Fun!

“A Fab Day Out!”

Written on: 05/04/2012

What a lovely day out. I came to Linton Zoo with friends, and we had a great day. We went into the quaint little cafe first to have a coffee, before we went round the zoo. We were amazed on howuch there was to see, from big cats, lemurs, reptiles, birds and lots more, a very enjoyable day, and great value for money. We decided to have lunch in the cafe before heading home. What a fab lunch, the Jacket spuds were the best we had ever tasted, with plenty of filling, the service was excellent… Read Full Review

“The Best Zoo”

Written on: 02/09/2011 by Amanda_Hurst39 (1 review written)

We were blown away by this enchanting little zoo. Not too big for the children to get around. Not commercial or expensive. So intimate, the animals were happy,clean and tame. Great interactive sessions with some of the animals and their very friendly and knowledgeable keepers. Amazingly close enclosures with perfect views of the animals. I would support and recommend this wonderful place every time. We loved it… Read Full Review

“What a lovely little zoo!”

Written on: 03/06/2011 by scattyblonde (1 review written)

I visited this zoo today with my mother and two children, my son is 3 and my daughter is 14 months. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely little zoo, we have been to bigger zoos and have found the animals can be difficult to see and are often miles apart, this zoo was just perfect for little legs and how amazing to get such a good view of the animals. My son also loved the dinosaurs dotted around the zoo! We will definately be back!! … Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2011

As a family we have been visiting Linton Zoo since our eldest daughter was 4. Now 20 and on a visit home from Uni she asked if we could spend the day at Linton because of all the happy memories she had. What a fantastic day we enjoyed.The weather was exceptional and showed the spring flowers off throughout the gardens at their best. As it is a small zoological garden it is easy to cover and take in at your own peaceful pace. The animals reflect this and seem tranquil and relaxed and afford… Read Full Review

Linton Zoos is one the funnest zoos I have ever been too! It is a small zoo but they have a large variety of animals everything from small animals like rabbits to Lions and tigers. Not to mention the many different types of very adorable and happy lemurs. I will definitely be coming back in the future and hope to maybe do the Zoo Keeper experience… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2011

I have visited Linton Zoo on a number of occasions over the past few years and as of today purchased an annual pass. I find it very difficult to see how anyone could critisies the zoo or staff members, as in my experiences I have never encountered any problems with either. I frequently speak with the keepers and can safely say that they are a very friendly bunch and the lady in the cafeteria is very friendly, with a menu intended to provide healthier option meals. Yes there are a few enclosures… Read Full Review

Today I completed my Zoo keeper experience at Linton zoo and I had a great time! I never thought that i would actually get to bath and groom a Tapir!

A lovely little zoo, great value for money. The was plenty to look at but its good in that you can get round the place in about 1.5 hrs. The staff were freindly and the toilets were clean. I would agree that the Cafe is basic as is the shop - perhaps if zoo staff are reading this it may be time to build a new visitor centre as once this is done, I would be rating it as five stars, so long as the price doesn't go up too much… Read Full Review
