We were there around three hours. Some people came in walked round the aviaries once, saw a display and left after about an hour and a half, but you'd miss so much doing this. Each display is different, we saw three... More
Good morning, We visited along with the WyeValley and FoD group on the 15th of this month. Can we offer a belated thanks for a superb evening? We run a small B&B and three holiday cottages, one cottage is wheelchair accessible and we were impressed with your facilities for the disabled. Could you please provide a link , which we would use in our website? Regards Edward & Marian
