Default Zoo up for sale

UK zoo housing 300 exotic animals goes on sale... for the same price as a London flat
Someone should buy this before someone from the AR side does and releases all of the animals!

I saw this on Zoopla. It seems reasonable but the running costs of a zoo are very expensive , especially when you consider that most of the visitors are in the summertime .

I used to live in Aberystwyth, This 'Zoo' is fairly run down, it would need about £600,000 to get it back up to a decent standard.

Its also located in a small seaside town, Borth, this place is very very quiet during the off peak season. You would need some crowd pullers to see you through the winter....Im not sure that the 'Zoo' has that much room for expansion.

There is additional land, however, I believe this is in the form of a field behind the house on a hill, so not ideal for expansion.

If you have a bottomless pit of money, then it could be a good project, but if you want to make any money from it....

I love Borth! My family are from Aber so I could see myself there but indeed, it's never going to be a top holiday destination.
