The swans were nesting so we were very lucky. The swans were turning their eggs and looking after their babies. Chance to feed them at no extra cost. Well worth a visit. Took far too many photos!

Well worth a visit. Very well set out. We were lucky enough to see cygnets at one week old. So cute. Nice cafe too.

This is a really lovely place to visit, however I would recommend you getting the money off coupons out of leaflets if you can as it is 12.50 per adult to get in, so a bit expensive if there are a few if you. That...More

We visited the Swannery again whilst on holiday to Somerset this year. As I absolutely adore mute swans it’s a fantastic place to see hundreds of these beautiful birds and to get some amazing photos. Around this time of year the swans are nesting so...More

I think you can, we had our own wheelchair but I'm sure I saw a couple their. Give them a call they will be able to say. You can take your car down nearer the swans just tell the guys in the shop.
