My wife and I have just returned from a few hours Zookeepers experience and we loved it. From cleaning out a monkey enclosure to preparing food and handling an owl and sparrowhawk. A great way to spend a few hours and remember it's a charity so the money is pumped back into caring for the animals. Go on support them!

We visited on a zookeeper experience deal and we had a fab time the staff are so friendly and they are all so dedicated to caring for the animals. We got to feed lemurs and pet a Wolf dog and fly an owl. This is not a big center but it is well worth a visit as every penny goes... More

The Staffordshire hoard is on display together with a very interesting tory of pre medieval England during the Mercian period. Upstairs is an excellent display of Staffordshire pottery throughout the centuries. This a well laid out museum which is having a new wing added.

Have been visiting Gentleshaws for a few years now as we had family staying near the centre.

It is also uplifting to see how such a small place can have a big impact as most of the animals... More

Super family oriented centre with a delightful collection of rescued birds and animals. Pleasant cafe. Get the impression that the birds and animals are treated as respected visitors rather than 'exhibits'. lovely atmosphere. well worth a visit.

We visit the centre every year. It is a great rescue centre that only relies on donations. There is a variety of animals who are always clean. Not sure how people can moan at the entrance price when feeding all these animals would cost so much! We happily donate extra when at the gate amd our little one puts change... More
