  • Not a huge place but then it didn't charge a huge amount for entry. We really enjoyed spending a couple of hours there. The penguins are fantastic and the talk/feeding is definitely worth going to. Also try and find Claude the cockatoo - he was very playful when we were there. Bourbon on the water is a lovely place.
  • Really nice place to walk around, plus it's dog friendly (except indoors) tickets are day passes so you can pop down to one of the local pubs for a bite to eat or sit at the River side cooling your feet. Great place for a cheap family day out and set in such a beautiful area
  • Great place but some of the bird cages did seem a little small. Great day out.
  • Stopped by whilst casually wandering around Bourton. Looked nice but £31 for a family ticket a bit too expensive for a quick visit.
  • This is a nice little find off the beaten path great little stop for kids or just something to do in the area. I would highly recommend going during the summer so we can see all the birds.
