  • Very relaxing and informative if you like birds and countryside. Amazing to think you are in such an urban area, it's a great escape. Plenty to keep adults and children interested for 3 or 4 hours. Otter feeding time was a highlight! Nice cafe with lots of options for children too. Plenty of parking, but remember to ask for a token at reception or as you leave, to get out of the car park.
  • If you are into birds then you will love this place. If you aren't into birds then it's a nice place to walk around while learning about the wildlife. The staff are knowledgeable and do regular talks about the animals. It's a great place to take kids as they have a bunch of activities for them.
