Although we all love to see birds flying free, these birds are living a lot longer because they are loved and cared for. Don’t worry about these birds they are very content and cared for. Enjoy the great hands on.

A lovely place. Birds look well taken off. Would recommend it. Great for kids as well. They offer separate tours that are reasonably priced.

Purchased as a leaving present for my husband. Never heard of the place before but we both had a memorable day with well informed staff. Well worth a visit for a hands on experience. Thanks to Andy, Metal Micky and Geordie George (sorry).

I agree with the other answers. Reasonably wheelchair friendly, but the staff will ensure that you are able to get about.

You can visit the center at any time with your entry ticket, however, you can't start your visit, have a pass out for your afternoon tea and then finish off your visit.
