Our Review! A Rainforest in the UK I took my 6 & 9yr olds to take a look at the living rainforest. We booked in for the 9:30-12:30 slot which is plenty of time to walk around the enclosure. When you buy a ticket it lasts for a year, which makes it a great option for families who are budgeting their trips. Everything is indoors which makes it a great rainy day activity. It is warm inside so no need for a coat (Especially when wearing a face mask). We saw an amazing array of creatures, from dragons and snakes to armadillos and sloths. There were beautiful birds walking around out feet and awsome bugs, monkeys and tortoises that you could get up close to. The cafe served hot pastries, sandwiches and drinks and there is an indoor seating or outdoor under cover seating. The kids play park is currently out of action. We are looking forward to heading back after lockdown 🙂
