Went to Durrell with the family over Easter, as always a treat for the kids and with new babies and the bears to see we had a very enjoyable few hours. Keep up the good work.
I always visit Durrell when in Jersey, great way to spend a few hours and always something new to see. I love Durrell's commitment to breeding endangered species.
I was brought up on Durrell’s books a firm family favourite and this is my second visit to Jersey and the park. It’s more beautiful and a great testament to a great
