We had a great nice few hours strolling around and seeing all the animals. The park its self is quite compact but has a lot packed in with a real ring of animals. We visted at around lunch time and the animals where all out and very active (even though it was a bit wet and rainy). It is very... More

On a cool but bright afternoon in February we went with family and grandchildren to this sensibly priced and well organised attraction. Birmingham is very lucky to have such gems and indeed many locals spend a lot of time at Cannon Hill Park's wide range of facilities. The animals are well accommodated and obviously well cared for. The fact that... More

Its a nice place to go to. Big enough to stay there an hour or two, have a picnic and play in small wood area. Just got our annual membership so should be fun to pop in when weather gets better

On first impressions it is a lovely place and very good as they provide free carers entrance,good flat pathways for wheelchairs and quite wide doorways into animal enclosures.Cafe was ok and food ok but expensive but expected however having no changing space facilities for disabled children/adults was a let down.I asked to use the first aid room but apparently they...

Have visited many times with my family, love the fact there's lots of animals being given a home and cared for. If we're looking to fill a couple of hours then watching the animals habits always brings a smile to our faces. Have always found the staff polite and helpful too. One things for certain we will return!

Always a great place to visit but Spring is the best time as most of the animals will have young. Only a small area but animals are well kept and always seem to see lots of activity - great value for money - absolutely recommend.

Me and my boyfriend went here for valentines day instead of a conventional meal and other things. I was surprised by how many enclosures were there and how many animals were actually out! Considering it was a cold day all the animals were out and active. It was really pleasant and the staff were too. The cafe was a lovely... More

Can't recommend this highly enough. Even on a grey February day we had loads of fun. Lots of interesting animals that not all similar venues have. Loved the porcupines. Staff here do a great job.

Went with our daughter who is almost 4. The size of the place lends itself well to families with young children as it is not too spread out, and you can cover it all in a couple of hours... The price reflects this - £14 for the 2 of us. would have only been £18 with 2 more kids too!... More

Great animal sightings even on a cold, albeit sunny, winter's day. Red panda and the 'bear cat' were both in full view, as were the Tamarind monkeys, meerkats and an ocelot. Other delights included red squirrels and snakes. Excellent value and lots of places for children to play - including inside the cafeteria. Birmingham is fortunate to have such a... More
