Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park is difficult to give a rating. It is a small wildlife centre run by the City of Birmingham, that has a low cost entrance price of £6 with concessions for the young, disabled and seniors. It is a great place to spend two or three hours. It is therefore good value for money. However, cuts in... More

I took my 14m old son here, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I thought £6 was a fair price (especially when so many attractions are charging north of £15 per adult) and I really liked that it was small because actually it wasn't overwhelming and you didn't feel you had to charge from one thing to another in case...

A small but well maintained collection of happy healthy animals. We often prefer places like this to the bigger zoos, as they are more intimate and more value for money (£6 per adult). A lovely morning or afternoon out.

Just took some family as a day out as live quite near, saw most of the animals, a few were hidden in shaded areas due to the great sunny weather. Everyone one was in hysterics passing by the Otters... In full view they were giving each other some loving! One dad had to tell his son they were fighting 😂

So firstly the price you pay for entry is very satisfying. £6 per adult is a great in anyone's book. The park it's self is easily walkable for even those who have very small children. A few of the attractions were closed so that was a little disappointing but still there was plenty to see. One bone of contention would... More

Took my 13 & 7 year old for a couple of hours . The price wasn't as much as most places around .The animals are not much and you have to search for them which is disappointing . The play area was tapped so no playing for the lil ones. They need to keep on top of the toilets as... More

I visited this small little secret a week ago and was pleasantly surprised. The small fee we paid myself two children and grandmother was reasonable. The zoo was a quaint place not too taxing for the childrens grandmother to walk around the day was warm and pleasant and most but not all animals were availabe due to works being carried... More
