  • Worthwhile if you're in Bourton, good variety of birds on display and not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. Highlight is definitely the penguins.  more »
  • Very nice and cool place to look at birds from all over the world. Would recommend if you are nearby. Cheap entrance as well  more »
  • Lovely wildlife attraction. Quite small and we found 3 hours was enough, but would have spent longer if the children could have been persuaded to listen to the flamingo and pelican talks! The penguins...  more »

  • Surprisingly good attraction even if you're not really into birds. Kids really enjoyed it too. Some of the birds were actually quite funny to interact with, not just pretty things in a cage.
  • Took my girlfriend here for a day out and had a great time. Even enjoyed the dinosaurs. Great for families
  • Was such fun! Great place to walk around even go off up the road a look at all the shops. Get there early to find easy parking next door
  • A hidden gem! An amazing array of birds to see. Do stay for the demonstrations. They are fantastic. The staff are also brilliant!
  • A wide variety of birds from all over, and a kookaburra that laughs at irregular intervals (a delightful thing to hear, believe me). Nice!
