  • The Birdland was very nice. We been with our kids 8,10 years old they very enjoyed. I can just recommend the visit and little advice don't miss the walk in the village is beautiful. Birdland have very nice different species of birds and is very nice place to walk.
  • Visited here today and it was a good morning out - we booked online and you get a better price than paying over the counter so you will save yourself money. I am giving it 4 stars purely because of the parking outside, we arrived early enough thankfully but it was mental when we went back to the car park. We paid £3 odd I think for a few hours. Overall its a decent few hours out for the family
