Good trip, lots of facts given by the tour guides. Lacking in toilet and wash facilities but overall a good trip. (March 2020 - Primary)

Excellent venue and age appropriate for 4 to 5 year olds learning about the rainforest. (January 2020 - Primary)




Very informative guides. Children enjoyed the day. (January 2020 - Primary)




They need more toilets and children need longer in the Glasshouses. (January 2020 - Primary)




An excellent learning experience for pupils who saw their learning come alive in The Livig Rainforest. Wonderful opportunity for them to encounter real plants and animals from the Amazon rainforest and experience the humid conditions which exist in this location. (October 2019 - Primary)

Staff were patient and knowledgeable. (June 2019 - Secondary)




A really well-organised and interesting venue. (June 2019 - Secondary)

Children enjoyed the experience and outcomes achieved. Glad we were one of the last groups as it was more enjoyable when quieter - it was sometimes difficult to hear the presentation. Group size was too large to see clearly - would make sure we were in smaller groups next time. (May 2019 - Primary)

Excellent tour guides, who really knew their stuff. Excellent environment, very warm and welcoming. (March 2019 - Secondary)




Excellent talks and place to visit. Needs more toilets however. (March 2019 - Primary)




The tours are well organised and the tour guides very knowledgeable. The facilities are adequate but a bit worn. The toilets are not really adequate when there are large groups in. (February 2019 - Secondary)




Fantastic first hand experience for the children - the tours were particularly interesting and informative which met the key objectives for the trip. Good value for money. Went for the later tours which maximised our time there and ensured the full hour for our tours. For 93 children space can be tricky but not much we can do about that! (January 2019 - Primary)




Absolutely fabulous trip! Well organised, in line with Year 4 curriculum, informative and enjoyable. Kids and staff had a great day out, would highly recommend. (November 2018 - Primary)




Only concern is the shortage of number of toilets which makes it tricky to get everyone through before the return journey (November 2018 - Primary)




Tour guides very knowledgeable. All staff very helpful. (November 2018 - Primary)




It is a popular visit that we have enjoyed undertaking with our Year 6 children for many years. The staff are friendly and professional. However, the storage space for coats is minimal and (when it rains) the indoor lunch area is cramped and possible unhygienic. There are not enough toilets or handwashing facilities for the number of pupils booked each day, although hand sanitising spray would certainly reduce the bottleneck at the sink. (October 2018 - Primary)




Not enough activities to fill time productively for Y2 age group. Only 2 toilets with three schools plus public visiting. (October 2018 - Primary)
