  • First time visiting. Spent about 2 and a half hours there. Perfect visit for us as we have an 18 month child. Great for adults too. Good value for money at 7.75 an adult. They also sell reasonably priced food for the birds which is quite nice as you get to feed the birds on your way round. Highly recommended for all!
  • I visited here last year with with ex partner and a friend. Unfortunately we was the only customers there. I'm not sure why, maybe the weather and the time of year. I paid about £20 approximately for the entrance fee, and we also purchase some food for the birds. We also purchased some drinks in the cafe area. We spent over an hour looking around, and we enjoyed it with all the different types of birds all around the site. I can't really remember any toys for the birds to keep themselves amused. But it was something different for us, and it got us out of the house.
  • Superb afternoon spent here. If you're a bird lover this place is just perfect for you if you want to see something exciting there's that you never thought you could see it that's good place to start it's a good place to hang out with family mostly with parents that have small children's it's a wonderful scenery and the birds always happy to it from your hands they're really friendly the staff act professionally they really do take care of the animals and birds that they are inside it's really nice to go when it's warm outside you could spend more time there. They also have a souvenir shop or you can buy lots of things you can adopt an animal if you want of course just paying money naturally taking at home but it's really amazing on those people are doing all those animals so if you really want to spend some quality time with family I highly recommend tropical Birdland
  • Absolutely loved this place. Great way to spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. Very friendly atmosphere and great selection of birds. The pygmy goats were adorable too. The playground is really for children aged 4+ and was definitely too big for our 2 year old, nevertheless, it's a great playground. We will be visiting again.
  • A brilliant attraction, well worth making the effort to get to from the M1. Many of the birds are free to fly around as they choose. It's very odd seeing brightly coloured macaws flying around in the grey British skies. The birds appear to be well looked after and have the option of flying back to their enclosures whenever they choose. The entrance fee is fair, even factoring in the cost of buying bags of fruit and nuts to feed to the birds.
