  • An excellent example of science and nature married to family and child friendly activities. I came in early October to see the newly arrived geese and I was not disappointed - there were thousands! 
  • We visited here on a fine sunny morning and greeted by a lovely lady at the cash desk giving us information and maps. It was lovely to walk through the grounds seeing a huge assortment of ducks and ge...  read more »
  • Great day out with my wife and yound daughter, 2 years. Plenty to do and a nice walk around it all. Nice price for admission. 
  • A great place to take young kids - Feeding the ducks is always a favourite! Plenty to see and do in a beautiful area. Although we haven't yet purchased, a yearly membership would be a good deal for frequent visitors. Cafe / visitors centre is bright and clean. Well worth a visit!
  • Experienced a disappointing visit to castle espie. Not a lot to see and although opening hours till 5... staff start locking gates after half 4. Young kids playing in soft play area (2 and under) and staff member closed windowed shutter door leaving them in darkness as it was coming up to 5. Very disappointed and Overpriced for what it is.
  • Great for family days out. There's a good cafe (which you can get into without paying the entry fee), a small soft play for rainy days, and a couple of excellent play parks for children of all ages.
  • We love Castle Espie for the kids. They love feeding the ducks playing in the soft play area. Have a membership....worth every penny x
  • The duck pond is nice, and theres a nice little walk with a play area, but there aren't many toilet facilities, little provision for babies (changing areas), it is a bit on the pricey side, and I always come away with a general feeling of meh.
