Our daughter loves animals and we tend to take her to West Midlands Safari Park or Dudley Zoo because they are closer to us but for something different I decided to take her to here and I was pleasantly surprised. For a start, she was free (she was under 2 at the time) and it was only £5 for me,... More

This place really is a hidden gem! It is owned by the council and entry costs a fraction of a commercial farm or zoo. It has merecats, lemurs, lynx, snakes, deer. a variety of sheep, and a whole range of unusual animals. Unlike a commercial petting zoo you CAN'T feed the animals, so bear this in mind. Our kids love... More

Lots to see for a small place, the monkeys are sweet and red pandas gorgeous. The only gripe I have is the cats seen to be doing a lot of pacing around their small enclosures which I found sad. The tickets are cheap and its a good day out but I don't know whether I'd come again.

Lovely place with some great animals. Its cheap to get into as well. A wide range of animals from your farm like animals such as pigs and goats to the more exciting lynx and ocelots. Its also home to some endangered birds and monkeys.

I have been here a few times, tickets are very cheap & a lovely opportunity to escape from the city without actually travelling that far. There are a wide variety of large exhibits, the animals are very well taken care of & you can bring a picnic. It's perfect for a wander around with your partner or a day out... More

Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park is really quite cute. They don't have the largest selection of animals but what they do have are all super cute and you can get up close and personal with the animals. There's lots for small children to see and do and it's buggy/pram accessible. There's plenty of parking and being in the grounds of Canon... More

if you have a few hours and want to keep young kids happy take them to the nature centre on the pershore road , it is about 1 / 2 miles south from city centre (bullring ) its like a small farm with other animals from around the world

It's okay! I think the place just needs decent refurbishment The wayfinding could do with updating and a lick of paint could go far here and there. The shop is a little dismal too - could easily be more of an asset and more inspiring.
