Visited during the week outside of school holidays so it was very quiet which was nice, no queues. It's quite small but there's still enough to see and amuse the children for a good few hours. There's a little train to go on and a good playground, which I think our son liked more than any of the birds! It's... More

Haven't been to Bird World for many years. Good day out for all ages of children and adults. Talks given by keepers during penguin and pelican feeding times were informative. Safari train not worth it if a really long wait. If queue is short then worth the ride as again commentary informative. Agree with others comments that it is looking... More

I went for my first visit with my daughter (1) and a friend with their child (also 1). I have to say, I am surprised by the rave reviews. We started in the Underwater World. I thought a lot of the tanks were very green, and where the crocodiles were there was thick dust on the glass. We then had... More

We took part in the bird world penguin feeding experience, we didn't really spend the day at the attraction we mainly went for the experience only, this review is based purely on the feeding experience. The penguin keeps Michael and Evalin where lovely, they met us just before the time and explained everything well, the feed was so enjoyable and... More

Went there today with our 3 year old. The place was good but not as big as they are trying to market. We had fun and time well spent. However, we probably won't visit again. There are better places with lot more to do for little ones.

Have been several times. Went on 14th Feb 17. Spent 5 hours looking around. Child loved it - learning about the the birds - amazed at the colours of feathers - feeding the birds - answering the question paper about different breeds of penguins - enjoyed the underwater world but, not that excited. Had cooked food in the cafe, not... More

The Birdworld bit of Birdworld is fabulous, especially the new Terry Pratchett themed owl parliament. My kids spent ages chatting to parakeets and parrots, and trying to out-stare the owls. They enjoyed watching the penguins being fed, and walking through the penguin beach and the flamingo cove. Some areas of Birdworld feel a little dated, but the newer sections are... More

My husband and I took our 2 year old grandson for the day. I had never visited before. Although it was cold there was a lovely cafe where we all enjoyed the most delicious hot chocolate. The many varied birds all looked well cared for and the whole park is on the flat so access for buggies/disabled people is excellent.... More

We spent the day at Birdworl with an 8, 6 and 3 year old. The children all had a great day. Lots to see and lots of space and playgrounds for them to run around in. It wasn't very busy and it felt very safe. However, the general decor felt quite dated and in need of some tlc. I also... More
