Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cotswolds / Bourton-on-the-Water / Birdland
Discover exotic and rare birds as you explore Birdland, set in 4 hectares (9 acres) of gardens and woodland. Flamingos, pelicans, cranes, storks, cassowary, and waterfowl live in the riverside habitat with parrots, owls, pheasants, hornbills, touracos, and many more inhabiting over 50 aviaries. Warm up by visiting the temperate and desert houses, which are home to birds who enjoy hotter and drier conditions. Stretch your legs by exploring Marshmouth Nature reserve, a secluded 1 hectare (2.5 acre) trail through marshland, ponds, meadow, and copse with views over the River Windrush. Check the website beforehand for the shedule of bird feedings and “meet the keeper” sessions. To plan Bourton-on-the-Water vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
Sadly this place is very rundown and the birds seem to be neglected and not very well looked after I understand the need to look after the wildlife and a balanced approach to natcher but its just...

Great experience! Took my partner to feed the penguins. Went on for 40 minutes, really impressed. Great price for the experience and the rest of the park was also brilliant. Beautiful and very well looked after. Can't complain!! Also very informative. Dog friendly but please loom for the no dog zones and some people ignored them and stressed a few owls out. The playground looked great so good trip if you have children. Also have a dinosaur activity for them and if completed they receive a badge.
Visited as three adult couples and three children aged 5-10. Lovely half day out, although could be stretched to a full day with kids. It was very well maintained, amazing selection of birds. Dinosaurs were also well done and a nice forest walk. Excellent kids playground. Cafe very small and basic but adequate and good service. There were queues for women's toilets though as there aren't many at all and you did have to pay for parking separate as the car park does not belong to the zoo, but that's very minor negatives. On the whole a must visit for any bird lovers.
