  • The bird and reptile experience was excellent. The miner bird did Peppa Pig impressions and Georgia was extremely attentive and highly knowledgeable about the reptiles and bugs. Great value, would definitely recommend.
  • This is a real hidden gem and a very good find. We loved our time exploring around the centre. You have to pay to let your child access the play area that they call a beach, but it is a staffed play area and they do engage the children in activities. The food and drink was very good.
  • This place is quite unique. A great place to visit and eat Caribbean based foods. Loved it and will be back at some point.
  • One of the best places that I have been to for a summer afternoon meal and drinks in the Midlands... You feel as if you have escaped Birmingham and are on your hols, even if for a few hours... Any other suggestions of places similar would be good... Can't think of any myself...
  • A unique centre and a must see. More garden centres should look to be this different and give it an edge rather than just like the rest. Staff very friendly. A refreshing change. A jewel in the Midlands. A little expensive. Make the visit.
