Birdworld has provided my family with great days out since my daughter was a baby. It's perfect for pushing a buggy round, with so much for children to point at - and the birds are amazing, there's everything from enormous ostriches and pelicans to tiny finches and budgies, toucans, owls, vultures, and some stunning exotic species such as the Lilac Breasted Roller which is worth the entrance fee alone, and is friendly enough to peck food from your hand (through the enclosure bars, of course). You can buy freeze dried meal worms, then play tricks on your children - by squeezing the container the worms seem to be alive!! Screams of horror! My daughter is now 10 but still loves petting the animals at the Jenny Wren farm, and visiting the aquarium - included with the entrance fee. I find the place therapeutic, full of great bird calls, colour and interest. Fantastic for artists or photographers. Loved the new(ish) aviary where you can mix with the budgies: the joyful chirruping gives you a lift. Though we were shunned (as usual) by Boris, the Great Grey owl. He is very shy.
