“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This was my first visit to an enclosed free flight bird reservation. It is spectacular. Beautiful coloured very tame birds, who will eat a feeding stations a few feet from where you are photographing them. Don't rush through this attraction. You will want to see all that you can

“A must for bird lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This a a massive caged free flight aviary where one can walk around without the constraints of a guide.

It was good to be able to take this in in ones own time and what can one say other than if you like wildlife and birds do not miss this.

“Packed with birds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is a really great way to see so many birds. The aviary is so massive you forget you are in an enclosed area. The birds fly freely and can be seen really easily. Feeding areas help to concentrate some smaller birds. The paths are well set out and you can wander for quite around differenthabitats. There is a lovely pond up near the cafe where you can watch the birds whilst having lunch or a drink. Well worth a visit. Great for children too.

“Beautiful and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

It's one of the most stunning places I have ever been so be sure to bring your camera. Restaurant is amazing too with great views. Brilliant for families, friends or by yourself. All the staff and volunteers were extremely informative and friendly too. Very impressed not only by the park but also the service provided.
