Newest Review: ... enough for them to stretch their wings in. The cages aren't tiny but I reckon owls are such big birds that they should have more room than they've got here. You walk through the Nature Centre through a set of paths and they're all signposted so that you don't miss what you're looking for. There's a reptile house and a place that is full of spiders and scorpions in glass vivariums. I HATE ... more

The Nature Centre is a wicked place to take the kids and it's safer than a lot of petting zoos because the animals are mostly in cages and special fenced off areas so there's not much chance of copping E-Coli here! There are loads of animals to see and a nice cafe and soft play area for the little kids. My favourites are the red pandas even though they're usually in the tree and you have to squint to see them unless it's feeding time and then you've never seen an animal move so quick! There are owls and other birds as you go in and my little sister loves standing watching them because she prefers birds to animals but I'm not keen on that bit of ... Read the complete review

I have visited this nature centre on a number of times over the last 5 years or so since I was first told of it. Firstly it is along a busy road with several bus stops nearby but I have always driven and there is a large car park to the side and you can also park in the Cannon Hill Park car park which has hundreds of spaces.

Once you walk out of the shop/entrance you walk straight past the sheep and down to the childrens playground with pigs, a guinea pig village and giant rabbits. There is also a soft play section in the cafe for young children. The cafe itself is well ... Read the complete review

Birmingham Nature Centre is somewhere I have been lucky enough to visit twice and both times I immensely enjoyed it. It isn't a big zoo-there's no zebras, penguins, rhinos, lions or tigers nothing like that. Its mainly small mammals and birds-albeit then not a huge collection. Nontheless, I still find this place hugely enjoyable. Maybe its becuase its so 'small'. It is atually centred just next door to a park-Cannon Hill Park which is a rather large and lovely park complete with playground, big green spaces and a duck pond. You do actually have to park in the park's car park which is free with the Nature Centre being about a 30 second walk away. You actually ... Read the complete review

I hadn't been for about 10 years and then one day we were trying to think of something to amuse the kids and we ended up at the Nature Centre. Its a ... Read the complete review
