Lovely visit

Lovely way to spend an hour, kids got to touch a skink, a hedgehog and a tarantula, too early for the bird displays but a great experience all the same, thank you :)

I went as part of a small group purely to take photographs of the birds. We had a superb time. The birds were clearly well looked after and amazingly patient and unfazed by us taking photographs. Andy was experienced at bird photography and set up the best possible opportunities for us to get wonderful photographs. He also helped with tips... More

Worth every penny, had to find something for grandchildren to do in october holidays and this was a great treat. Was not bored at all, interacted with creepy crawlies and the birds of prey. Would definately go back even grand kids want to go back next year.

Spent a very enjoyable day with Andy and a large variety of birds as part of a photography course. The birds were in excellent condition, calm and professionally handled. Andy not only knows his animals but as a photographer himself could give advice about best angles, settings etc. They also have a number of small mammals, snakes and a lizard.... More

We called in here as it was on our list of things to do and we were not disappointed. Don't expect it to be on a grand scale. The Staff were fantastic and you could see that they all enjoyed there jobs and were not there for the money. The animals were cared for properly and we had plenty of... More

We visited the centre today while staying at the holiday park (myself, husband, 8yo and 5yo) and it was most likely all of our favourite activity of the whole week. So much better than I had imagined, Juanita and Ben were both so lovely and absolutely great with the children. The shows are spaced through the day (check their website... More
