No visit to Essex is complete without a day at this popular zoo with over 250 species of animals. The enclosures are well maintained and the zoo provides a good habitat for the animals there. The 60 acres of parkland and lakes are ideal for walking round and we are sure this day out will provide you with lasting enjoyable memories. Some of the highlights include penguins which you can see swimming at Penguin Shores, and the elephants at Spirit of Africa. In addition there are over 30 daily shows to attend.
This attraction is actually free of charge to enter which we think is excellent. Located on the Southend Seafront there are over 50 rides and attractions to enjoy. For the very daring there is a 75ft roller coaster with a more than vertical drop- not for the faint hearted! Other highlights include the Dragon's Claw, Vortex, Scorpion, Ramba Zamba and Sky Drop. Younger children will also find plenty of more gentle rides and attractions to keep them entertained.
A day at Great Notley Discovery Centre and Park is a fantastic way to explore the very best of Essex offering many facilities including a sensory trail, visitor centre, bistro and cycle hire centre. There are links to over 15 miles of walking and cycling paths on the Flitch Way too. Those with young children can rent a trailer or tandem bike to make exploring fun for the whole family.

Fantastic hidden gem. Only half an hour by train from London but blissfully peaceful
Christine, Hellingly East Sussex
excellent lodge , lovely comfy and clean , loved the site and surroundings
Emma, Se London
The only negative I have which is the reason for 7/10 is we couldn't pull the blinds down in the living area without the fixture popping off & the taps in the ensuite came off (sink & shower), the shower itself worked but it's holder was loose & the jets weren't working. No wifi was a bit annoying so couldn't chill out with Netflix (tv had free view but literally the basic channels) but wasn't really too fussed.
Although this is minor-the curtains/blinds were dusty & lots of cobwebs around windows & doors & hot tub steps etc (not a complaint at all but if I didn't say then it can't be correctedðŸ˜‰) x
Great location, nice walks by canal, great connection to London. Nice lodges & excellent restaurant on site which is good value at lunch
