This is a great, inexpensive attraction tucked away in a Birmingham suburb. I took my goddaughter (7yo) here on the recommendation of a friend. It is rather hidden away on Pershore Road, but once you enter it is in fact a decent sized place with a nice selection of small and medium sized animals ranging from reptiles to some lynx.... More

Visited with two children 6 and 2. Really pleasant place plenty to see. There is also a small soft play area in the cafe. Not badly priced if you work for bcc you can get a discount if you take proof. There was quite a lot of wasps around and in the cafe. The cafe offered a selection a food... More

I thought this might be a good introduction to the zoo just to see how my kids (aged 2 and 4) would like it. It turned out to be great value for money and was just about the right size to get round before the kids got tired. There are plenty of benches to sit and have snacks as well... More

A small zoo packed with many fun animals. Great value for money and probably a 2-3 hour visit. Many slightly longer with children that are more interested in the animals. Cannon hill park is next-door. A great visit especially for locals from Birmingham

What a lovely place to visit. This smallish zoo is perfect for young children (and also for adults!), Even though it was quite busy there today it still felt quite tranquil and calm after the drive through Birmingham to get there. A lovely range of animals with some that I did not expect such as the lynx and the ocelots.... More

We have been visiting here for the last 15 years and have always been impressed. It's fantastic value for money at £17 for a family of 4, it also has a great range of animals ranging from Red Pandas to Ocelots. Would recommend to anyone looking for an excellent day out in Birmingham!!

Visited for the first time with friends. The centre looks quite small from the outside and we only allowed a short amount of time to visit. We were rally surprised at how many animals were there and how good it was. The centre is much larger than it appears from the outside and there are a wide range of animals... More

I thought it was a waste of money, there was only a few animals and not enough to do. They should make it free then mayb they would get more people. Absolute waste. A walk at canon hill park was a better view!!! Never would go back or recommend.
