  • Visited on my way elsewhere and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The birds seem very happy and will take nuts and fruit from visitors. Lots of the birds are not enclosed and are very friendly. Staff ...  more »

  • What a fantastic place! Came for a day out with my hubby and sister and we loved it. This place is a hidden gem. I love the fact you can feed all birds and animals. The fact that most of the birds are free flying is amazing.
  • A great day out for all of the family,you can feed most of the birds with fruit or nuts and then at the end there is an area where some of the birds can be handled (on their terms of course) lots of peanuts are very handy. They also like zips, buttons and earrings so watch out for these feathered bandits lol. We had a great time and we would highly recommend.
  • Had a great time. Took both granddaughters for the day and really enjoyed the experience. They liked the budgies the best whereas I struck up better relationships with the McCaws. Food was average. I think possibly they could make more of the restaurant with a bit of investment, but couldn't fault the children's play area. All in all a highly recommended day out ideal for the whole family.
  • If you love birds you have to visit Tropical Birdland! Lots of different types of birds if you look up into the trees you'll probably see a Macaw! It's not a massive place but plenty of birds to see, there is also a small woodland walk. You can purchase food on entry so you can feed any of the birds whilst walking around. There's a restaurant and outdoor seating area if you've brought your own food with a kids play area. There's an outdoor area where macaws, parrots, parakeets etc are out in the open. You can go up to them and pick them up ( if they let you!) stroke them and feed them. If you're wearing jewellery or shirts or tops with buttons on watch out as they like to pull them off or peck at your jewellery!
  • Great place to visit, lots of different birds and is amazing getting so up close and personal with them. Highly recommend long sleeves and wearing clothes without lots of buttons and tags if you want to hold the birds. Cafe on site and lots of parking.

Where to stay in Leicester

A B&B near Leicester Clock Tower is within walking distance of the main attractions. Charming architecture surrounds the clock tower square and makes a lovely backdrop to walking tours of the city. For a luxury hotel, consider staying in a renovated Victorian building on the outskirts of the city center.
