“Small, but welcoming!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The compact site was well managed, pleasing to the eye and had enough animals to keep my 2 year old grandson happy, together with a nice little playground which he also enjoyed. Maybe not enough for older children to be entertained for long but as it was sunny we managed to spend a couple of hours! We all enjoyed a nice cuppa in the little cafe too!

“Great fun”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great fun, a treat for children of all ages, and the biggest budgies I have ever seen. You can buy food to feed the animals and there are toilets and a small café.

“Half a Day Out”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

We went to Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park in May 2013. Although it's only a small park there's enough to entertain for half a day or a good couple of hours. Most of the animals came, more than willingly, to be fed except the Alpacas, which were a bit more aloof.
All the animals seemed to be in good condition and well looked after. The goats, as usual, were the most entertaining. Nice wildlife areas and aviaries to look round with a selection of exotic birds. The cafe was reasonably priced but limited in it's selection. Perhaps a good place to take your own pick-nick and just buy your drinks there. The owners have done a great job, so far, but need to expand to build on their success.
Very little under cover so not somewhere to go on a rainy day.

“beautiful”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Beautiful beach, great for kids. Not too cheesy but enough of the attractions you would expects for an english seaside.
Great fish and chips
