There is a cafe open at certain times of the year. But we recommend a pack lunch, where we can continue the day together, we provide tea, coffee and water, look forward to seeing you both soon.

There is no waiting time you can book to visit Gerard and his birds straight away. The only delay will be if the day you have chosen is fully booked. Get booking and enjoy a great day out.
