Expert review of Trotters World of Animals

A walk on the wildlife side

For a hawk walk or a lemur encounter, Trotters is the place for a close brush with over 100 species of animals.

It's fun, eductaional stuff with a strong motif of conservation throughout. Try to catch one of the keeper talks or handling sessions to learn more about unusual species.

For kids, the indoor play area is a good to burn energy on a rainy day.
