Zoo de Beauval

We promised a blog about our recent visit to the Zoo Park de Beauval at St Aignan, so here it is.

We have never visited this attraction in all the years we have visited and lived here, but we know it is a very popular place during the holidays - in fact all year round, so we decided to arrive as soon as possible after opening time. I ordered our tickets on line which was no cheaper, but meant we didn't need to queue. Sure enough, even at 9.10, there were already a lot of cars in the car park and camping cars and coaches in the designated areas.

The zoo itself is a delight to visit. Even though it was very busy, once we got past the entrance, we were able to wander at our leisure and see all the animals.

We spent a nice morning, strolling around the compounds then left for lunch which we had already prepared for a picnic. We were given a stamp on our arms which allowed us to return to the park.

We have no hesitation in recommending the zoo as a place to visit. The pandas were especially cute and played to the crowd!

  1. Hi,
    I visited wth Tom, just before the arrival of the pandas but thought that it was the best zoo I've ever been to.
