"Enjoyable day for all the family…"
I come here with my friend and my 3 and 1 year old multiple times a year, I went in May 2014 and it was £5.50, children 3-16 is £3.00 and under 3's go in free. A variety of animals and an indoor cafe with a small play area. Picnic areas outside and public toilets with a changing facility, the changing facility is within the actual toilets (near sinks) which i found difficult as people kept coming in, we had lack of privacy which is very important to my daughter. Close to cannon hill park , a nice day weather permitting.Read moreLess

"Great place for a sunny day out (take a picnic)…"
We often go to the Nature Centre for a couple of hours on a sunny day.
There are lots of animals to look at, with various different feeding times throughout the day, a little playground, and a mini cafe and soft play.
If it's raining, however, it's not great: the soft play is teeny and you won't last long in the cafe.
Some of the bigger animals are a bit depressing: the lynx seems to be in a much smaller cage than you'd like.
They've put the prices up a bit in recent years - currently £5 for adults, free for under 5s.Read moreLess
"Nice size for little ones…"
Took DD 3 yrs and a friend's 18 month old who both enjoyed looking at animals at nature centre. Has farm animals and more exotic monkeys, meercats. Not too big but plenty to look at and a little playground too.Read moreLess
"A 'must' for anyone living in, or visiting Birmingham. Excellent…"
A 'must' for anyone living in, or visiting Birmingham. Excellent vfm. Also right next to the beautiful Canon Hill Park so you can take a picnic and make a full day of it. Lots of animals to see (who doesn't love a meerkat?) and easy to wander around as little or as much as you want to each time you visit. Great for young families. I can't comment on food as never eaten there - my dcs like the ice creams though!Read moreLess
