A good place to take the children, something for everyone, nice collection of old vehicles and well laid out grounds and ponds with a huge variety of bird life. Space for the family to picnic or you can eat at the on site cafe. Worth the visit.

My wife and I took our three children for a day trip to Bentley Wildfowl Museum. We arrived at 1400 and found it was only open till 1700. None the less we still wanted to have a look around. It cost us full price at £26 for a family ticket. Once inside we found the museum very very small, and... More

This is a wonderful place that is fantastically well set up for people with mobility issues - and it even has FREE loan of mobility scooters to go around acres of lovely wildfowl reserve!!! I went with my elderly parents, who had never even been on mobility scooters before, but instantly got the hang of them, and they were utterly... More

My children love coming here and it is great for all the family. My son.loves the miniature train which has been extended in recent years. The park is beautiful with a large range of birds. Feeding is fun although I have taken bread also. The house gad limited opening times so best to check with the website. If you love... More

i feel quite mean saying this really cos i think they deserve a bit more publicity,but this attraction wasnt worth the £8.00 each,although there was a £2 discount for disabled visitors,which my husband is. We usually find that in nearly all places weve visited,that one carer or helper goes free with a disabled visitor,not this time The car museum was... More

It was our own fault , but we stupidly misread the name of the museum and thought that the car museum was going to be full of Bentley's which was what reallly drew our husbands there, turns out it is the family name and they were a little dissapointed, having no real interest in wildfowl,only cars. They did visit the... More

Dear Tracey M368, Thank you for your review of "Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum". It's a slight problem for us but we did make sure we didn't call the attraction Bentley Motor Museum & Wildfowl Reserve. We are a small part of the Bentley Estate and our site was originally Bentley Farmhouse. We put the Wildfowl first but we have... More

We were a party of four adults, (two being teenagers), who visited on a rather cold and dreary day. However, we still enjoyed our visit. The admission price of £7 each was very reasonable. All of us found the motor museum very interesting, there were some really beautiful old vehicles on display and the member of staff there was very... More
