Say What?

|| The venue and staff are fantastic! The venue its self is stunning, the rooms you use throughout the day are great and then walking around the zoo with your wedding guests is a unique and fabulous touch to your day. The staff leading up to the big and event and on the day are really organised, thoughtful, friendly and great, nothing was too big for them and they always went out their way to make your day special. I really couldn’t have asked for more from this amazing venue, our zoo wedding day was perfect in every way ||


|| We would both really recommend booking your wedding reception at The Clifton Pavilion. The zoo wedding access went down really well with the guests – both children and adults! It also was a great setting for wedding photos. The food was delicious and all the staff worked really hard to make sure the night was a success. We’d both really recommend going for the photo booth too ||
