Hamerton Zoo Park | Review & Giveaway

Hamerton Zoo Park | Review & Giveaway

Weekends are all about family days for us. James works long hours during the week and I’m back doing KIT days for my return in September. Last weekend we visited Hamerton Zoo Park which is just on the outskirts of Cambridgeshire. I have to admit I had never heard of Hamerton Zoo Park until I saw the cutest picture of a baby donkey on twitter! To say I was excited to go would be an understatement.

It took us just over an hour to get there, passing so many places I had forgotten about. My Summer Adventures list is about to get longer!

As we pulled into the car park I did think it looked more like a little farm. But it is actually a lot bigger than it looks. It is one of the smaller zoos in the area but I promise you it does not mean you get less! If anything I found the whole experience so much better than the bigger zoos.

They have so many different animals there – some I had never seen before. Especially not as up close as we got! We actually saw a baby Joey poking out of its Mum’s pouch!!

The thing I loved most about Hamerton Park Zoo was how the animals just seemed at ease. They were happy to be photographed and just came and went as they pleased. Their enclosures were of good size and had plenty of hiding places should they want to hide from the public! In my opinion there is nothing worse than animals being kept in tiny little enclosures purely for visitors pleasure.

My favourite part of the zoo park has to be the stroll-a-safari. The goats and sheep have free access into this area and you are able to get up close to them and feed them! Just make sure you have a 20p coin with you (or two or three!).

However Little would tell you that the shop and playground were the best bits, I’m sure. I was actually really impressed with the playground because Baby could actually join in too! She absolutely loved it on the swing and climbing frame. She wasn’t as impressed to be in the big swing with her sister pulling her about though 😉

Usually the shops in places like this are absolutely extortionate and you end up spending more than your entry ticket! But this was not the case. I thought the prices were very reasonable and they even have little ‘pocket money’ options for as little as 50p.

No British day out is complete without a bit of rain. Luckily a lot of Hamerton Zoo Park is under shelter so we didn’t let that ruin our day!

    That Joey is so adorable! There is a little farm near me and I grew up visiting quite a lot and used to love feeding the goats! x

    It’s always nice when the animals are engaging and look happy in their surroundings.

    This looks like a great place to visit, it’s great that they have an area where the children can play.

    The kangaroo picture is very cute, nice that the animals seemed relaxed in their surroundings and always good to find new family-friendly places to visit x
