Popular Harlow attraction Pets' Corner has been recognised as one of the best in the world according to website TripAdvisor.
Each year, TripAdvisor assesses reviews, ratings and saves from site users across the globe and awards the very best places based on what people think of them.
With 295 reviews, 276 of them rating Pets' Corner as Excellent or Very Good, and an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5, the review site has awarded the facility with a Travellers' Choice award - placing it in the top 10% places to visit worldwide.
This is a major accomplishment for the Harlow Council-run service, which is also a registered zoo, and is a testament to the hard work that the staff and volunteers put in each and every day to make it such a great place for families to visit.
Councillor Chris Vince, Porfolio Holder for Community and Wellbeing, said:
"It makes us all immensely proud to see Pets' Corner being recognised as one of the top 10% places in the world to visit. We've always known how popular Pets' Corner is with people and this award just goes to prove it.
"My congratulations go to the staff and volunteers, without whom this fantastic award wouldn't have been possible."
