  • Great place for an outdoor family day out. There are a couple of routes to take, each one with hides dotted along the path with which to view the birds. Time taken for each one takes approximately 15 minutes each way, depending on how often you stop. Family ticket is £11 at time of writing so very reasonably priced. There's also a playground near the visitor centre which caters for various ages. There is a cafe or there are plenty of picnic tables around which are not too far from the carpark, so you can easily nip back when ready.
  • Love the whole Old Moors experience. I'm a complete birdwatching beginner and have found staff and volunteers extremelly friendly, helpful and welcoming. My only complaint would be the poor quality of meals in the onsite cafe but I must also say the staff are pleasant and helpful.
  • Great place for taking kids interested in wildlife. The bug lady was really good too
  • Good food. Good atmosphere. Lovely setting
  • Very welcoming staff and atmosphere great gift shop and it all goes to good cause a nice quiet day out
