My little (10month) boy absolutely loves Birdland, we live a 10 min walk away from it and tend to go at least once or twice a week.

We had a great few hours here and will be coming again shortly. The talks and the animals are great and the Jurassic walk was fantastic. The only let down for the trip was the cafe to which i have emailed them direct.
