Yesterday me, my partner and my 2 year old daughter visited here and we were amazed by the place. Close to Birmingham it is ideal for those who live locally and wish to head somewhere that won't take hours to get to. Even in the summer holidays the place was busy but not to the point you couldn't get anywhere nor see any of the animals. It had a great range of animals for a little zoo, with the best views of Red Pandas and Lynxs I have ever seen. The cafe was reasonably priced and the food was pretty decent too. Our daughter loved the place, plenty for her to do including Outdoor and Indoor play areas and amazing scenery such as walks over a river. She even was greatly entertained by the animal shaped bins. Overall I would say this is a lovely little zoo which is fantastic for anyone who is looking to have a cheap day out.

This is a charming conservation park which is easy to get around and has an array of fun activities for children (a ball pit, a playpark, opportunity to watch feeding times, activities). There are plenty of monkeys here which makes for fun viewing!

Even after many years of visiting the nature centre, I still find it extremely good value for money. Despite being in the city, you'd never know it. My 6 year old continues to love it and never gets bored. Well worth a visit. Don't forget your picnic!

We enjoyed the visit with our grandchildren. This is just the right size of ‘zoo' to take young children too for a few hours. It is not large enough to spend the whole day at, so not too much walking for the younger ones. There are facilities to sit and picnic or you can use the cafe. Some of the animals we saw were Mere cats, Otters, Lemurs, monkeys, tamarins and goats!

Very reasonably priced and a large free car park. If you intend visiting, look at their website so that your there for feeding time. There are about 4 different times.

Took our grand daughter who is 22 months old. She really enjoyed it. Lots to see without the usual rip-off prices charged by many other attractions in the City. Free parking was a pleasant change also. She was able to get close up to snakes, see otters swimming about and on land, watch Meerkats. If you want to watch the animals being fed, you need to get there in the morning. Retail shop was a bit of a disappointment and we bought nothing ( a rare event) - prices were a little steep and selection was poor. Their card machine had broken down and you could only pay by cash - think they should have a plan B! Signage could be improved to tell you what to expect as you go round. Good choice of food in cafe and reasonably priced. A good day out for families during school holidays who haven't got deep pockets.
