Absolutely blown away with this little place, very rustic but that just adds to the appeal. Extremely educational with talks without the day by the dedicated keepers who you can tell are really passio... read more »
If, and it's stating the obvious, you like animals/wildlife, this is the place to visit! All the animals are lovely, and there are talks by the keepers every half an hour - it is worth getting here at... read more »
We have been going to the BWC for several years now, in every season and most weather. The animals are wonderful and the center is very nicely put together. Take a picnic and spend the day.
Loved it. The talks by keepers were excellent. It was small scale friendly and a nice idea to have just British wild animals Strongly recommend. Good for both adults and children
This is a well run wildlife centre, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the animals they keep. They are happy to answer any questions and chat about the animals. The only reason i have not given 5 stars is in several of the enclosures and the bat house you cant see any animals. They could even be empty! There is just a sign to tell you they are there. Pros + Well run + Friendly staff + animals appear well cared for + nice coffee shop + child friendly + good parking Cons - cant see animals in several areas - £13 per adult (when we went) seems a lot to charge for the size of the centre (though my childeren were young enough to be free) Over all though my children enjoyed looking around and the adults did to so i can recommend.
All about the nature, not a theme park about animals. Went to the BWC on a rainy afternoon, carrying my grumpy 15-month-old (buggy had developed a flat tyre) and we had a wonderful time! There are loads of animals, that you'd otherwise only see on Springwatch, scurrying around all sorts of interesting enclosures. At first I thought some cages were quite small but then realised that almost all are linked by tunnels and other walkways so that the animals can "choose their room" rather than staying in one place. My baby loved going in to the badger sett to see them snuggling down and laughed non-stop for more than 5 minutes watching the owls flying back and forth. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and they give demonstrations of different animals at regular intervals throughout the day when it's their feeding time. A wonderful day and a place we'll return to over and over!
Went with 7 & 9yr olds - think that age can really appreciate this park. There were younger children there, but as animals are wild it's less accessible for them than a petting farm might be. Several enclosures appeared empty - understandable as many of the animals are nocturnal, but made a disappointing impression. However the scheduled talks by staff about the animals were really good so recommend it for that.
I really love this place. It might be a bit basic and not all the animals are always awake, but the indoor areas are fantastic for kids with mazes of mice and lemur and rabbits, the red squirrel enclosure is really exciting, and the rest outdoors is understated but impressive - if the residents show their faces ;)
