To be fair to the center it was early March when we visited and it was quite cold so we did find it difficult to see some of the animals. Admission was very reasonable,you could spend 3 or 4 hours here with children as they give them a fun quiz to look for things as they go round. There is... More

We weren't expecting too much when we saw the price to get in however this was a fantastic place to visit with a lot of different animals. A real bargain for only £6 for adults! The animals all looked well cared for and happy too. We all had a different favourite animal by the end of the day but the... More

Don't expect fantastic day out here but great for few hours out with the kids, animals are well looked after and it's kept clean. There is a snack restaurant and also a lovely picnic area, would recommend for young children

I thought it would be bigger but it's a lovely place and fairly priced at £6 for an adult. An enjoyable place to see animals that's not so big it takes forever to see everything

I visited this ‘Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park’ on a bright and dry winter morning as a day date location. Convenient to get to on the 45/47 bus from the city centre and situated on Pershore Road, in front of Cannon Hill Park, the entrance of the park can be accessed via the old Museum and the staff were polite, offering...

We visited on a Friday during school term time and it was pretty empty. My 3 year old step daughter loved it and so did we. We stayed for between 2 and 3 hours i think, we saw some animals get fed and had some lunch that we took with us. There was a children's indoor play area which looked... More

Quite busy during school holidays but there's plenty to see with good signage and informative boards. The monkeys were most amusing! Would have awarded 5 stars but it's all looking rather scruffy. Good parking and location next to the park and Art's Centre.

Sadly play park was closed and the slow play it's very small! Meerkats enclosure was very poor. Cafe didn't accept cards was... More

Nice cheap day out seeing animals in the nature centre. Just next to cannon hill park too. Watch out for days when you can feed the annimals too. Nice little cafe inside but also picnic areas. The paths are all in pretty good nick so quite easy for push chairs and wheel chairs.
