in a party of 6 over sixties, 2 thirties and 2 four year olds, have never been more dissapointed and disgusted with the way animals are kept, surely in this day and age this is illegal. the big cats all pacing the same track in their small enclosures, obviously going out of their minds with bordem. crocodiles laid in stagnent water. in the bird enclosure there was different stages of dead birds decomposing stuck in the netting. all the grounds were just overgrown and unkept. the owners need...

what a disappointment!!, cages at thrigby hall are empty and dirty, gardens needing attention, not good value for money, you can see evrything in under 2 hours. The tropical house needed a good wash down, the willow patterned garen needed a paint up. (read more)

A very good 1/2 day out and I thought the admission was very reasonable. I've not seen such a large crocodile and alligator exhibit anywhere else in the U.K. (read more)

The woman on the front desk, who is about 80, is so rude, she snatches your money and at £16 for two adults it's a bloody rip off. We touched a brochure and she shouted £1.50 whilst snatching it back. You don't mind paying that kind of money when the place looks well kept, when the animals can move a little more freely and when they look happy. Thrigby Hall a disgusting place and I will be telling everyone not to bother. (read more)

Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens a wonderful park with great childrens play facilities. Tiger walks with a twist!!
The educational impact is limited with respect to information boards and conservation of the species. However the environment for both animal and person is pleasent.
Stimulation and enrichment for the animals has improved year on year. I visited in June 2005 and enjoyed the visit.
If you like crocs and tigers you will enjoy your visit. (read more)
