I booked Zoo2U for my daughters 2nd birthday party and I am so please I did, Becky and Jess were fabulous. They arrived in plenty of time to set up, they were brilliant with the kids and taught them h...ow to hold, stroke and to use their inner happy voice � they also gave lots of information and history regarding the animals. The animals looked well cared for and content and I would not think twice about hiring Zoo2U for another party. Birthday parties can be stressful at the best of times but with Zoo2U everything was calm and well organised. I am a very happy mummy x See More

What a wonderful experience! Booked it for a surprise for present for my daughter's 21st and we had the best time. Jessica was really knowledgeable and friendly and we had the Meerkats jumping on us t...o be stroked and were able to feed them too. Sadie, who I booked with, was lovely and spent time explaining the experience and what they do at Zoo2U. Altogether a memorable, fantastic experience, well worth a visit and good value too. Thank you! See More

My little boy had a cute and cuddly party for his 4th birthday. He absolutely loved it and so did our other guests (children and adults). Jess was amazing and very knowledgeable about the animals. The... animals were adorable!
Communication prior to the party was great. Cannot praise you all enough. Thank you so much! Best wishes. Xxx

I recently booked Zoo2U for our Staff Summer Family Day at Manchester United and I'm so pleased I did! They were fantastic to deal with, had a wide range of wonderful animals that are clearly extremel...y well looked after and the kids not only loved meeting all the animals but loved learning about them too. It was educational and hugely fun. We'll definitely be using them again next year in the hope to meet a few of their other animals. Thank you Zoo2U for being one of the highlights that staff have mentioned since the event. See you next year! See More

We had a fantastic evening when Jess came with her friends, the session was very informative, interesting and fun. To keep 30 cubs quiet is some achievement. Kevin the Kestrel kept us all entertained ...with his chirps. Once again thank you from The Cubs at 1st SWC and we look forward to another visit in the future. See More

Fantastic day out for the family! We didn't know much about Zoo2U before we went but sounded fun so visited with my sister and 2 young nieces (5yrs and 2yrs). It was exactly as the website described a...nd more and we all had a really good time!
There were lots of exotic and tropical animals for the kids and adults to learn about with regular talks and 'petting' sessions throughout the day from the really friendly and knowledgeable keepers.
We paid a for a standard day family ticket which was great value for only £12 and there were plenty of things to do along with Zoo2U as we were able to go to the shop, cafe and local pub then pop back to the centre whenever we wanted to listen to an info and petting session.
Not sure whether the kids enjoyed Zoo2U more or the adults but we'll definitely be back! Can't recommend it highly enough - 11/10 Zoo2U!

I booked the meerkat experience for my daughters 7th birthday as she loves animals they all enjoyed it, the animals were very friendly and she was brilliant in educating the children with facts about ...the animals. I like how you can choose different packages and the animals you would like. Booking was extremely easy and straight forward and they were able to attend at short notice so booking her party was not stressful in any way, I had a group of happy children who had plenty to tell there parents about the animals, I would highly recommend using zoo2u if your children or even adults are mad about animals great experience, would like to thank Zoo2u.

We asked this morning who was making the noise in our video. It was our four baby Guinea Pigs! Here they are stuffing their faces with hay. These lovely ladies are now members of the Party Team, visiting people's houses as part of our exclusive party packages. Would you like to have one of these cuties come to your party for a snuggle? Visit our website for details -
We have some new members of the Zoo2U team. This video is a short clip of their morning chorus! Can you name the species??

Today was a special day for some key stage 1 children in Rochdale, the animals were coming to visit! They are soon going to start reading Meerkat Mail so we took along some of our animals to get them started with their topic. The children had a great time and some even faced their fears by stroking our lovely Boa Connie
