I took my 3 year old boy here on saturday and we had lots of fun. Really enjoyed the collection of cars, motorbikes, cycles, toys and trucks. There was a lovely lady in the car museum who was very kind. There arent hundreds of cars but there are a really nice mixture of classic cars that you can get very... More

£49 to take my family was far too much , it's basically a load of trade tents and any rides you want to go on involves more money , enjoyed the day but won't go again

It's not related to Bentley cars, but you can see classic car museum, but mainly concentrate on birds different types of birds like ducks many species, peacock etc.. Need around 1 hour to visit birds living independently , like a forest.

We visited Bentley with friends in mid-September having not been there for over 10 years. The sun was shining and we enjoyed a leisurely walk through the woods and the bird enclosures. It was all very beautiful and peaceful and we survived an assault by an angry swan! (There was a warning notice in the shop). We then enjoyed the... More

On to the motor museum where there are some unusual cars on display. The café beckoned next where we enjoyed coffee & walnut cake & shortbread (baked there and... More

I visited recently with 2 grandchildren, aged 7 & 4, and had a lovely morning. The day started with a ride on the little train (paid for separately from the admission, £1 each) which they enjoyed, then a walk through the bird enclosures. It's worth getting the packets of bird seed at 50p for them to feed the birds. The... More
