The Living Rainforest...Hampstead Norreys, Berkshire UK

The Goaldi family enclosure, a joy to watch these little monkeys feeding & playing…has been 20 years since I took my baby son to the Living Rainforest Gardens at Hampstead Norreys, then a stone’s throw from where we lived, and JAM was trundled round in his pram. Today he took his sweetheart Billie for her Saint Valentine’s Day treat, and ol’ Mother came too…was lovely, and the £10 entrance fee is valid for yet an other enjoyable year…we will go back each season to see the flowering plants, and the multitude of animals, insects, butterflies , fowl and reptiles…what a joy in the Berkshire countryside!

    I always get sad at zoos. The animals pace and look so distressed. Except at the Minnesota zoo, where the enclosures were huge. The tigers lived in a big park and visitors took a little train around the perimeter to see them. They looked content at least.

      The Living Rainforest is very much involved with conservation and the free range creatures make for a very exciting visit…the huge leaved plants worth a second look, for the elusive lizard or very hard to see slow moving sloth…can not wait ’till the Butterfly season.
