Its been a few years since last visiting this wildlife park, so was really pleased to see it still going strong. It's reasonably priced for a family with young children, and parking nearby is free, but can fill up quite quickly when the weather is hot. You can spend a good few hours in this park, including taking in a... More

There are a lot of interesting animals such as the European Lynx, the capybara, porcupines lemurs and monkeys. My children enjoyed it as they get quite close to the animals. The cafe is ok with...

Clean and tidy, all animals looked well cared for and mainly in large enclosures. I was surprised at the variety of animals there. there were red pandas, meerkats, guinea pigs, deer, pigs, cranes, 'bearcat' (never seen one... More

Lovely place with endangered animals. Animals looked like they are being looked after well. It has a play area for children too and the entire place was very child-friendly. Would recommend!

People visit Birmingham for the Bullring Shopping Centre, but there is more to Birmingham than the city centre. Cannon Hill Park, which was gifted to the citizens of Birmingham by Louisa Ryland upon her death, is a 300acre park with plenty of places for kids to run around freely. See the swans, geese, more hens and if you are lucky... More

I had heard great things about this zoo, so was excited to go. Firstly the entry price was very reasonable (& they also offered student discount). On a positive note there were lots of species of animals, so overall a great variety for a smaller zoo. However, the place looks a little run down, especially the "eco section" which is... More

The actual site is really good, lots of different animals to see, very clean enclosures, and a lovely walk around providing the weather is good. However, I advise you to NOT eat at the cafe!!!! My partner & I have had severe food poisoning for the last 2 days. Luckily my 11 month old baby didn't eat anything from there... More

Such a wonderful place, the enclosures were lovely and clean. Animals all looked well looked after. We had a group of 8 children ranging from 3-12 and all of them enjoyed it. Super day out at a fab price. Gift shop could do with a few more things in but nothing else negative!

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
