Birds – and so much more!

Join us for a great, fun family day out! The 26 acre park is home to hundreds of unusual birds, and we also have a fabulous farm, (that is also home to a pair of reindeer!) an aquarium and the wonderful Forest Lodge Garden Centre so there really is a packed day out to be had for all ages! We have a busy schedule of daily events. Brightly coloured birds, fabulous keeper talks and feeds and two amazing daily shows, the Outdoor Flying Display and the Discovery Theatre Show.
