Being wildlife in wetlands this is probably better suited to adults. The best part of the day was a peaceful trip on an electric-powered boat (with wheelchair access). We were fortunate with the weather which was very warm and sunny although not necessarily ideal for photography due to the resulting shadows and glare. There's a few hides to choose from.... More

We took our 7 year old son to visit for the first time yesterday (it has been quite a few years since I had visited, and it much improved since then). Although there are several hides for the more serious twitchers and photographers, there is plenty to do for the more casual visitors and children are very well catered for.... More

We brought an annual pass for here as our daughter enjoyed seeing the ducks when we came and it seemed better value for money. The entrance fee is extremely high for what it is. The second time we visited our daughter was already stating to become board. There's a little boat trip which is nice and a very small play... More

Spent a wonderful relaxing morning today, my 81 year old parents found the walk round easy. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride, quiet, peaceful and my first sighting of a kingfisher, a special moment. Our guide was perfect, knowledgeable and friendly. Also saw a water vole eating water lily leaves, very cute. Would love to return here another time.

Really enjoyed our day out here, nice boat ride, enjoyable walking and loved very minute of watching the birds. In walking distance of the town, if you like birds you'll love it here...

We spent a relaxing morning wandering around this well kept attraction that manages to be both wildlife and visitor friendly. The reed beds are bliss and we met a very friendly and informative volunteer guide in one of the hides. A chance to see a wide variety of birdlife.

Visited here with friends with school age children. They loved it, as did the grown ups. Plenty of space and lots of information about the birds. Lunch in the café, food was fine but they ran out of some items quite early which was disappointing. Will definitely visit agai

Really enjoyed our visit with loads of delightful birds to see. Very largely natural with just a bit of a helping hand, but unlike zoos virtually all the residents can fly away! We are an adult couple who still got a lot out of it, but I'd suggest a great place to take your children.

Took our 4 & 3 month old. Lots of areas didn't house anything despite the signage. Didn't appear looked after - children's play area was about a decade out of date. Lots inaccessible with pushchair. Very expensive with not much to see.

We wash our pathways every morning but the friendly, wild greylag geese and Canada geese do leave deposits throughout the day. Our exhibits are naturalized areas, large enough for the wildfowl in our Living Collection to swim and move around in. Most of these birds, like the black-necked swans with their 5 cygnets are on show and easy to see.... More
