Family Fun at Whipsnade Zoo!

Whipsnade Zoo

Today we had a brilliant day at Whipsnade Zoo.  I would highly recommend this place; it is very well laid out, you literally walk round in a huge circle – no darting backwards and forwards every 2 minutes (other than chasing a toddler but Whipsnade can’t do much about that!).  You are never far from a cafe or toilets (very important when out when with a young Child!!).

The entry price was£56 for 2 Adults and a 2 year (Under 3’s are Free so take advantage while you can if you have a younger toddler!).  The entry price included a 10% donation and a £5 guide so you could make it cheaper.

The animals were all so well kept and we had such great fun, we watched a sealion show, watched a baby elephant chase what we think was a rabbit (although they didnt look like them close up!), saw the majestic and graceful Giraffes and watched an elephant walk, where they literally walk round the site trunk to tail with the keepers (unfortunately we were too far away to get a good pic!).

  1. All the zoo’s are SO far away from us, but i’d love to take my little ones to one! The circular layout sounds fantastic! It’s so hard & confusing when the layouts are so large and all over the place! I swear you always miss something!

  4. @happymummy says:

    It does make it so easy to go round without having to dart back and forwards!

    Amazing isn’t it ?

  7. We had a wonderful day at Whipsnade last year for my youngest’s 1st birthday. Would love to go back this summer if we can, will save our pennies!

  8. We’ve not been here yet but have it on our to do list. Love the idea of a circular trail, much easier to make sure you see everything #TriedTested

  9. I love the idea of the circular layout!
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

  10. It sounds like you had a good time. I know what you mean about the layout making the day much easier. I now have two ‘walkers’ so the fewer little side paths for them to dart down the better!

  11. We have recently just visited Whipsnade and had a great day……plus the restaurant sold wine which was always a bonus for us tired Mummies, ha! Popping over from #triedtested

  12. Sounds a lovely family day – I drove past Whipsnade at the weekend, on the way to our animal-filled day out at Woburn Safari Park, and did wonder about going. Shame I missed the free under-three bit! #citytripping

  13. It looks like a fantastic zoo. The sea lion show sounds great. Did you see the baby lemurs? It’s always very helpful when a zoo is well laid out. I’ve been to a few where you end up getting lost down paths and finding yourself in the monkey enclosure for rather longer than you were planning! Thanks for linking up with #citytripping.

  14. Whipsnade was my childhood local zoo. Is it still really windy up by the penguins? #TriedTested

  15. we love Whipsinade. haven’t been with our son yet though. #citytripping
