I visited birdland a lot when I was a child, but I hadn't been for about 10 years. I went yesterday and had a great time. There were lots of varieties of birds to see and it was lovely seeing the penguins up close.

Our Grandaughter aged 3 had a lovely day here. She loved the penguins and flamingos and being able to get up close to a giant tortoise and hold a snake were highlights.

A really enjoyable day out with the kids. Loved the fact the penguins were so close and they got to stroke the tortoises. Nothing bad to say about the place at all!

We had an enjoyable time. It's nice to see lots of new enclosures for the birds. Hopefully they will continue replacing them until they have all been done. The first row as you walk on from the penguins are quite small and tired looking now....More
