Yesterday me, my partner and my 2 year old daughter visited here and we were amazed by the place. Close to Birmingham it is ideal for those who live locally and wish to head somewhere that won't take hours to get to. Even in the summer holidays the place was busy but not to the point you couldn't get anywhere... More

This is a charming conservation park which is easy to get around and has an array of fun activities for children (a ball pit, a playpark, opportunity to watch feeding times, activities). There are plenty of monkeys here which makes for fun viewing!

Even after many years of visiting the nature centre, I still find it extremely good value for money. Despite being in the city, you'd never know it. My 6 year old continues to love it and never gets bored. Well worth a visit. Don't forget your picnic!

We enjoyed the visit with our grandchildren. This is just the right size of ‘zoo' to take young children too for a few hours. It is not large enough to spend the whole day at, so not too much walking for the younger ones. There are facilities to sit and picnic or you can use the cafe. Some of the... More

Took our grand daughter who is 22 months old. She really enjoyed it. Lots to see without the usual rip-off prices charged by many other attractions in the City. Free parking was a pleasant change also. She was able to get close up to snakes, see otters swimming about and on land, watch Meerkats. If you want to watch the... More

When planning my daughters first birthday, a trip into Birmingham City Centre wasn't on the cards until I was told about Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park which I had never heard about and only wish I had heard about it sooner as we had a brilliant day out. Me & my husband were really surprised with how many animals were there,... More

We visited with our granddaughter and our two great grandchildren aged 1 and 2. As a whole the venue has not changed much in the last thirty years. We have visited with our children, our grandchildren and now our great grandchildren. For 1 and 2 year olds there is not a lot to interest them, apart from one small children's... More

Having been told by my 3 yr old that we had to go see "animals", I wanted to take her somewhere different than our usual haunts and came across the Conservation park. When we got there it was great to find an abundance of free parking that was also right next door to the actual venue. The cost is extremely... More

+ great value for money, not expensive at all + nice size for a zoo for a few hours + food is basic but not over priced This is not a massive zoo (not even sure they call themselves a zoo), don't expect a huge amount of animals. If these are your expectations you'll have a great time. Highly recommended.

There is a big car park and it's not very busy. It's cheap to get in £14 that's 2 x adults and 1 x child. It was raining when we arrived but there was still a few animals out and the rain stopped and nearly all of them was out. Monkeys, birds snakes etc. There is a kids climbing frame... More
